I spent a good 15 minutes at our reservoir, hoping that the heron (a long-legged freshwater and coastal bird) would come perch on the cement wall as he often does. But it wasn’t the heron that gave me this shot. It was a family of swallows coming to skim over the water and take delicate sips. I almost fell into the water following the birds with my camera, which would have been hilarious in a few years time, but could have cost me my camera, book and phone!

Just wishing for a longer lens!

They would swoop just over my head to dip down to the water


It was amazing to have these beautiful birds flying so close to me, a truly magical feeling
