Great close up shot. Looks like you could have bumped him in the eye with your lens.:lol:

Another beauty, Rob. Do you have a floating hide, or do you lie on the ground to get these low shots?

Great shot - you've managed to get the entire bird in focus, but with a nice, soft background, and none of the white is blown. Excellent job, Mike.

EDIT : I've just had a quick look at your gallery - some wonderful shots there, but the heron with the snake bitiing its beak...well, that is just so good.

Thank you!

The snake put up a good fight but it was obvious this wasn't the first snake the heron had come across.
