Eagle eye Mike spotted this wonderful phenomena. It is a Great Heron sunning himself. This particular Heron calls this limb home apparently. We see him there quite often.
There have been a great number of Herons on the river this year. In one day last week Mike and I spotted six, including this one sitting on his limb.
Not much of a photo, it is just a small section of the film, and that was at 300mm. But, it is cool anyway. I have never seen such a thing with a big bird.
