Alright, maybe not 50 shades - but there sure are a lot of ways to snap a pic of one of these photogenic birds.
On the Urban Wildlife Photo Workshop we spend a lot of time with the charismatic long-legged heron, on the lookout for interesting hunting and nest-building behaviours as well as details and close-up portraits. Herons can be wary but here we can get very close and observe them at water level going about their daily lives - a great treat if you want to develop your portfolio with a range of strong images.
Have a look at the photos below, all taken on my recent workshops in London this winter.
And if you'd like to join this workshop, dates are now available for Spring 2020 here.
