  • Nice work, Alan. Great movement for both animals. I used to have a pond full of goldfish in our garden, until the local heron put us on his visitors list.

  • Love the graceful movement of the heron and the leaping frog Alan and I particularly like the mediums you have used.

  • This really is a beauty, Alan.
    We (my husband and I) just came home from a tour in the countryside and we saw two herons flying up as we came close! Two from the same spot next to the road. Beautiful sight it was.

  • Gosh thanks all. Just a bit of fun and an enjoyable break from working on these oils.
    They're not everyone's favourite bird if you have a pond or large pool, you'd need a big net to cover this one though.
    It was frozen solid for a week or more recently, so what they find to eat I've no idea!

  • This is a beauty Allan, great movement as the heron takes flight, love the highlights in white, I love the frog, we have them in our garden even though we have no pond!! But neighbors do, I love them, we often see a heron fly over the garden. This could also double for the juxtaposition February challenge 😀

  • I know I've already commented on this in the Forum, Alan, but I love this one :)

  • Well, this must be young Cyril, is it Alan. He’s almost dancing, it’s a super sketch packed with animation.
    I get them in the burn at the bottom of the field and in the garden, they will eat anything, I’ve seen them chase and eat mice.
