Heron & The Storm

Crane and the Storm over Leeds Sat 17th March 2012

A stunning thunderstorm descended on Leeds yesterday, but something else arrived to escape the impending downpour in the shape of a glorious Heron on top of the neighbours roof, I watched her glide in and land, she then looked out at the approaching weather, ruffled her feathers, as if a shudder had come all over her at the sight.

Luckily I had the camera over my shoulder (as usual) and took these wonderful shots of her and the storm.
