Flying heron


Although herons resemble birds in some other families, such as the storks, ibises, spoonbills and cranes, they differ from these in flying with their necks retracted, not outstretched. I could still capture a beautiful heron flying with outstretched neck, although in the second picture he already pulled back his neck.
