Excellent BIF capture, Bill. It looks like she's spotted something.

Outstanding capture, Vassilis. Both have the nictitating membrane closed over their eyes.

Thanks Mike, thanks Sha. It was really close (260mm) and they do close the nictitating membrane in order to protect their eyes from each other's beak. They really test your reflexes :-)

First time I have seen a heron in my local park - they live in other places just not there, saying that he or she didn't stay long

What an incredible and unusual shot, Shalu. It not often you see a hummingbird grab an insect out of the air, let alone get a great image of one accomplishing it. Your reflexes have to be in peak condition. :-)
