Cruel Nature

More time spent with the local Heron's, many of the young are still around where they were born and are still learning to feed themselves properly.

One particular youngster was observed gobbling up 2 ducklings within 5 minutes of each other much to the horror of the various pram pushers, dog walkers and general common folk strolling lady even lambasted me for taking photos of the event and tried to chase the Heron off so he didn't eat anymore....strange behaviour as this bird is simply doing what comes naturally to him and ensuring he survives, that's nature, and sometimes nature can be cruel...


  1. Fabulous shot of a natural event – it may seem harsh, but nature always finds a balance that works for all.
