This Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) was hunting in a hidden corner just below the Rhine Falls on the river Rhine near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland. These are the largest and oldest water falls in Europe. It took a lot of patience to catch him, catching this little perch (Perca fluviatilis). This is only about twenty minutes from where I live so I will return again soon and try to get a little closer without disturbing his comfort zone.
