Wildlife Spotlight: Heron

I put up a teaser for this post on Facebook yesterday but for reasons only known to itself, Facebook decided to eat the status update. Never mind, here is the shot that I wanted to show you: A heron in flight. I got only one chance at this shot, and certainly had no time to adjust camera settings etc. Dead pleased.

A heron, flying straight over my head.

We went to Karawatha Forest again, this time to the ‘wet’ section in the south, totally different landscape from the eucalyptus forest in the ‘dry’ section further north, where we went last weekend. The hiking trail went past paperbarks, billabongs and a lagoon. The flying heron was a sign of more to come: We also found a heron fishing in a shallow pool. I hope you enjoy the gallery!
