  11. Good morning, Denise. Great captures of the GB Heron. I am always amazing to see these big birds dunk their whole bodies into the water. They are always coming up with food. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  14. Hello Denise!:) These are all incredible captures. The one where his head is under water is funny,:) but he got his meal, and then flew off. A great and enjoyable sequence of images.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
