Waiting by casablanca

Waiting

Had a simply lovely morning with a wonderful fellow 365er today in a very soggy London. It's been so dry, I can hardly complain about the rain though I probably would have been wiser to take a raincoat with me!!

Just before I met her, I spotted this heron in the Italian Gardens in Hyde Park. The little flecks of dust and feather floating through the air are there because he was mid grooming when he suddenly looked up straight. Probably thought "oh no, dodgy looking woman with camera over there....."

@casablanca Congratulations on the TT. Maybe this rather grumpy looking heron will put a smile on his face now he is on the Top Twenty. I hope it cheers him up.
September 29th, 2018  
Congratulations on making the top twenty list! Love it! :)
September 29th, 2018  
@onewing @gardenfolk Wow, thank you for letting me know! That's the highest up that list I have ever been, amazing! Made me smile. If only the heron knew he was a star, he might smile too...........
