Then another heron (photo #1) showed up and tried to get into the act. The first guy got all upset and they flew at each other for awhile (I missed all those shots :'() and then they settled several feet apart and the first guy puffed himself up (photo #2) and just stared at the intruder for some time.

Nice Captures Serendipidy, The Eye on this Bird is just Tack Sharp, as well as a little scary, well done.

"Scary"?    Downright spooky if you ask me.
If he does leave you sometime, do you think his parting words will be

" so long, and thanks for all the fish!"  8)

Cheers Brian

Thanks Click. They are found along the east coast of Australia. For a small bird, they have a fairly loud call. A very challenging bird to photograph, as they move like lightning (a bit like the hummingbird). But a worth while challenge when I nail a few pics :)
