Artist's Description

This heron seems to be taking a proprietorial interest in a small new island at the exit from a stormwater drain in the lake in Hyde Park, Perth, Western Australia. This island was previously just a mound of sand that emerged during dry spells, but this year it has sprouted a mass of vegetation – all self-sown. None of the vegetation is more than a few months old – the storm water around here is rich in nutrients (or polluted, depending on your point of view), which cause problems with algal growth from time to time.

Camera: Canon Powershot SX30 IS with 35X zoom lens, focal length 4.3 – 150.5mm (24mm – 840mm 35mm film equivalent). Exposure 1/320th second @ f5.8. Focal length 150mm.
Featured in the WA Redbubbles Group, 20th September, 2012.
