Rush Hour

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 18 July 2010 in Animal & Insect.

I was trying to take a photo of these two gray herons when the duck unexpectedly jumped in the photo, too.

Love it when Nature commandeers a shot like this ! Herons are such stately creatures with a touch of the prehistoric about them.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks. I agree there is something ancient-feeling about them. I particularly like to see them fly over the rice fields.
