🦉 The grey heron (Ardea cinerea)
📚 Ardea (lat.) Heron
📚 Cinerea (lat) cineris ash, ash-gray
Eh, I still have no luck with these birds! There is absolutely no way to make high-quality photos. These birds are either far away or fly away when they see me.
Every spring they sometimes rest on the shores of one lake near the river, but it is very far away to photograph them. And every autumn, during migration, they fly along the banks of a large city river, and they can be seen on the banks. Unfortunately, sailing fishermen on boats often frighten them.
