Description

Heron resting by the old millstream at Caversham

The heron appears to be 'one-legged', but this 'unipedal resting pose' is common to many large wading birds such as herons and flamingoes. The most probable explanation is that the bird is conserving body heat in this pose.

Thank you, Paul, for your kind comment. I was lucky to get that shot before he flew off, because herons are usually quite wary.
