Yellow iris

Yellow Iris Gray Heron
This gray heron was standing on one of the piers at Lower Lake Rudan (Nedre Rudasjön), minding it's own business when I arrived to the nature reserve a while back. It didn't seem to bothered as I closed in, but when I came a little too close it stepped off the pier and into the lake so that I would get a good photo of it. Which was nice.

The close up shot is superb

I wish the cranes we see here had the same idea. Ours stay well away.

Great captures! We get the blue and some green herons here, but not this kind.

Ser man på, fågelfotograf nu för tiden. Bra bilder på hägern. Som av en slump såg jag två stycken flaxa förbi köksfönstret hemmavid i morse när döttrarna och jag satt och käka frukost. Din fågeliakttagelse känns dock närmre och bättre på alla sätt. Bra!
