While on an outing with Blarney Photography Club to the Lee Fields, we were lucky enough to see a very patient heron attempt to catch his dinner.

The light was falling, and it cast a lovely warm glow on everything.

The heron did catch a fish eventually. I was 100m away down river and on hearing a shout looked up and caught a very blurry photo of the bird with the fish in it’s mouth.
