When I visit London I always try and get to Regents Park. One of the main reasons is for the herons, which are very approachable. This time of year the are in breeding colours.
There are last years juveniles around too.
I quite liked this ‘different’ angle.
And I got a ‘normal’ shot too.
I also tried some wide angles of the grey squirrels.
They got too close at times.
This is the nose of one covering the relatively small lens front element of my 35mm macro!
I also got some on a tree.
Sadly my photographing on the tree was cut short by a Spanish tourist who decided put her hand and arm between me and the squirrels in a stupid effort to stroke it. Luckily for her it ran off rather than bite her!
I did spot this fellow a little later (though the idiot tourist tried to harass this one too!)
I got some shots of the other wildlife too. This black headed gull posed in the sun.
And a close up of one in flight.
This pair of Egyptian geese perched on a tree.
This greylag tried to take off.
And a one of the whooper swans in the collection swam by.
