2016-07-17: Grey Herons

The week has come to an end before I managed to get out and take any photos.  Since the last couple of weeks have been about my backyard birds, I thought this week I would share a few bird photos from my last trip to South Africa.

I hope you enjoy, and have a lovely week 🙂


A lone grey heron alongside a small pond that was filled with crocodiles.  It would have been a great reflection shot, if not for the plants and muck floating in the water.


The grey herons of Southern Africa remind me so much of our local great blue herons.  The size and head markings are quite similar. 


A rather dainty perch for a large bird.


This couple was spotted on another day than the single photos above; but since they were at the edge of the same small pond, I am going to assume that one of them is the same bird.


A beautiful aerial dance.
