Little Heron


The jetty at Pangkor Laut held a couple of little heron. Attempts to photograph them on the granite boulders that are found on the Malaysian shores were unsucessful as the birds spooked easily. It was only on the jetty, where perhaps the little heron were more tolerant of humans, that close approach was possible.

Very nice shot, this is a scarce bird in Hokkaido and I could only get crappy record shots.

Seems like you had a great trip......

Great Little Heron pictures. The background colour in the top one complements the shot nicely. Beautiful birds.

Cheers to you both - it's probably the closest encounter I've had with this species - wish it could have been hunting from a more natural vantage point though!
