    It's not artistic...it's not well composed...the light sucked.

    Look very closely....can you tell why the heron is upset?

    I couldn't quite figure it out as I was standing there freezing my butt off inn the rain...I kept hearing but I couldn't see.

    It wasn't until I got home that I finally figured it out!

    Ah, so those 'horns' sticking up are an owl's who just snacked down the heron's babies (or eggs?)

    Ya know what photo-accessory I've wanted for years? A cherry-picker truck.

    I'm going to do something I rarely do and boast - I spotted the owl quickly. :D 

    Heyyyyyy, I'm allowed to be right once a year and I just used up my entire allotment.

    The heron parent certainly looks distraught.

  12. The owl is eating the eggs :lol:
  13. Poor thing, life is tough out there in ol' Mother Nature. I'm surprised the heron doesn't have a go at the owl - that beak could skewer in a heartbeat.
  14. Hi Jim

    There could actually be a second owl that is very oof, but I am not sure. I would back an owl against a heron any day despite the bill on the heron. The owl would be much more manoeverable
