I took two photos on Thursday and now I am in a national paper!

A heron was trying to eat a huge rat!

I did send it them direct but then got an agent on the case and they sorted out sales, I should see this go round the world eventually (hoping anyway)

Just shows that if you are in the right place at the right time, it can all fall into place!

There is a link to that story next to my images, the funny thing being that they were in the sun the day i took mine and did not know of this behavior in
herons.
So I thought I would see if I can get a couple of sales and I have so far...

Still hoping for a few more sales......
