Thanks Nasos.
Like the red dragonfly in the September thread, this was taken with the heir of the 300mm lens you bought from me.

Nice, I like especially the first and third image. Strong title also, a bad hair day is my wife's worst nightmare :D

Thanks Luc & Akira.

Normally a Heron is something I see flying away from me.
On this day I was stood in a hide and was able to watch this one for a good 15 minutes as he preened, then jumped onto the post
