I have tried to capture this White-faced
Heron Ardea novaehollandiae for months
and had almost given up on getting lucky
the more rapidly the water in the pond
evaporated. Whenever we coincided there
he always spotted me first and took off.
I got lucky at noon one day this week, and
although he sensed someone coming, he only
flew across the pond
When he heard the click of my camera, he took
off. Sorry about the quality of this, I'm not too
good at tracking yet
but did get in this graceful stealth bomber
taking to the skies. The darker flight feathers
and white face proclaimed his identity.
