SJ9785 : Grey Heron, standing still

Grey Heron, standing still
Grey Heron, standing still
On the Peak Forest Canal at Disley. This bird seemed quite oblivious to our passing, and to the narrow boat moored nearby. On previous attempts to get a shot of a heron from a narrow boat, their annoying habit has been to wait till the last possible minute, while I am fiddling with camera, then to take off and fly leisurely to their next landing spot, where the whole frustrating business is carried out again.
