Every cloud has a silver lining

Every cloud has a silver lining

Discovered my car had a puncture while on my way
home for lunch. Left it into a garage for repair and
saw this handsome fellow in the nearby river.

I've never managed to get this close to one either. Great catch!

What a great shot Mairead - I've been trying for years to get a close-up, but they just keep flying away!

Fantastic! They're so difficult to get close to. Beautiful shot!

Great luck finding this fellow. Hope you tire puncture did not leave you stuck for long.

Lucky you. The herons here are much too shy for a close shot like this.

Brilliant shot! Lucky you to get so close. You'll have this image when the puncture will be long forgotten.
