A Perfect Match: A Pair of Herons

A Pair of White-faced Herons

A Pair of White-faced Herons

These seem to me to be a perfect match: two stately, elegant White-faced Herons strutting along the shore.

Generally ,these tall birds appear to be loners at the local baths. I see them very often at low tide: nearly always solo. But this time there was a pair, and fortune favoured me by giving me a chance to record their image.

Enjoy this little tableau on the Georges River in Sydney, Australia.

    Seeing one is a treat but a pair is special. Glad you could capture it for us.

    They seem to be enjoying a leisurely stroll.

      They seem to be, David, but I suspect that there is an element of survival in it. This area is alive with small crabs at low tide…

      Yes, it’s not very common, Joshi. I was just lucky to be there and have the camera. 🙂
