[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Coming back to shots from Tanzania trip after weeks of lot of work.It is so much easier to shoot herons in flight (and other birds as well) in Afrika, we were lucky and found places where we saw more than 20-30 herons at one place. In comparison to Europe, we can look around hours to see one far away from us.
We can see much better herons here in flight, but I was quite happy to catch at least this one.

Have a nice day.

Hi Lenka,

wonderful, this flying board. The light is from the side to good effect. You managed enough light for the underbelly. What species would this be? Well done, Lenka, waiting paid!
My best regards

Hi Lenka,
this almost looks like a small aircraft! I really like the way it fills the frame and the detail on the underside is very nice too. Great work, well done!
