      Thanks a lot. I don’t think they are social birds because many times when I tried to photograph them they would fly away. This time he was probably tired of doing it and just got used to me.

        Yes, herons fascinate me. I’ve seen one of them standing in water with ducks and other birds all around them, like the heron is the solitary guardian of the place. But they are so expressive! and maybe it’s the artfulness of your photos that have caught how expressive they are, no matter how fleeing, no matter how solitary and how stolidly they perch. And I had to laugh at the image your words created, the thought that maybe the heron got tired of hauling himself up into the air and just stood there stolidly for his portrait, thinking: “Whatever, dude. I’ve got better fish to fry, if I can catch one. πŸ™‚

        I couldn’t remember if I ever saw a heron in the company of other herons or other birds. Maybe I’m out of luck.

      It seems to me that his boundless patience is determined by the absence of a decision on what to do next. Before, when I first appeared, he immediately flew away. Thank you.

      Many thanks, Marc. It would be much easier for me if I had him on my payroll, because for one successful shot I needed to take many photos in order to achieve the desired result. Very often he refused to pose and flew away.
