I have posted about Goliath Herons before but recently on our safari through Kenya, while out on a boat trip on Lake Baringo in the Great Rift Valley, I managed to get very good photos of this fascinating bird.
Our boatman and knowledgeable bird guide, Johnson stopped to show us a pair of Goliath Herons, one standing on a nest
He pointed to a younger Heron standing on the same tree top
Possibly this was the female standing to the rear of the tree-tops
When I downloaded my photos, I was thrilled with the next photo. Obviously I had the settings right, the background and surrounding foliage was perfect. I also captured this image with the rays of the setting sun playing over it.
