Grey Heron

Last weekend, during one of the few dry moments between the showers, I went for a walk along a lake nearby. Finally some photography moments again… I hoped to find some Wigeon on the grasslands next to the lake, but only found this Grey Heron. Pictures of common birds are never very popular, especially not when they don’t have nice colors or aren’t doing anything special. This heron is common, grey and just walking in a grassland, so no points there. Strange actually, as this is the nature we have around us all the time…
