I had been dying to catch this guy on camera. I would see him from my car when I drove by but whenever I went down to the river with my camera he was gone. He is very wary of people. I was chatting to a Neighbour and while chatting the heron arrived. It was not the best position or light but I had to go ahead regardless. As soon as I got closer he bolted. I know that the pics are a bit amateurish but I guess the way to learn is to just keep taking pics.
