My friend The Heron, again, hanging out behind a fence by the Tolka River. At least this time I had the right lens (Canon 100-400 L IS USM). The heron’s feathers are blowing in the wind, and that’s a fence in the foreground, in case you’re wondering. Here’s the other photo of the heron from last week…
