    1. Thanks. If you like Herons in flight you might try to search on Herons, or maybe ‘flight’ in the search box here. There are many here. Thanks again.

    1. Thanks, I appreciate that. However as photographers we use this site to promote our work and projects so are not able to participate in blog awards. But again, thank you.
