"To muse, to creep, to halt at will, to gaze ... such sweet wayfaring" William Wordsworth
Perhaps a white-faced heron ... ?
Probably. Haven't had time to look it up.
Red eyed ducks... been boozing?
Funny how many birds have red eyes and it's not the flash doing it.
Fantastic shot of the heron.
I love taking bird shots but fail more often than I succeed so I was lovely to get this one.
