The Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea), is a wading bird of the heron family  Ardeidae, native throughout temperate Europe and Asia and also parts of  Africa. It is resident in the milder south and west, but many birds  retreat in winter from the ice in colder regions. It has become common  in summer even inside the Arctic circle along the Norwegian coast.

========================

About this image.

I normally ignore Grey Herons as they tend to fly too high or perch too far. I also ignore em because I have a lot of good photos of them already.

What made me record this image is the fact that the bird was flying so low off the water. Something I yet to have.
