heron on black velvet

Inspired by another photographers awesome shots of a juvenile Green Heron at Ambleside i decided to go check it out after work yesterday as i had some time to kill before meeting a friend.
At first i thought i would leave empty-handed but was determined to take a few shots anyways and proceeded to setup in front of a Crow.
As luck would have it no sooner had i setup than the Crow flew off but i also noticed a small heron on a log not far from me.
i wasn't used to seeing these little guys on the side of the pond i was on but it was definitely a lot quieter than the front where the nesting activity took place earlier this year.
The sun wasn't exactly out yesterday but i had my Better Beamer flash extender and took many shots of this little heron fishing.
