My first Grey Heron and a send off

During my evening walk on the beach in Ballinskelligs I came across this Grey Heron. I´ve seen them before but somehow never took any pictures of them. I decided to spend a bit of time with this bird and was really surprised how many different shapes this animal can create. The sun went slowly down and the light got better and warmer. The Heron was walking up and down or flying around me because I had propably entered his territory and he seemed a bit upset.
Anyway, I took those photos today, and I´ve got a bit  joy out of it. I need more time to get closer next time.

Irish broadcaster Gerry Ryan had a great send off  today.
May he rest in peace and turn in to something beautiful like this Grey Heron.
