Heron over ul. Pozytywki

I've seen it before, but it has always proved elusive. Today, while walking around the pond by ul. Pozytywki (lit. "Music-box Street"), I caught this grey heron hovering over the water before flying gracefully off to the west. Perhaps the two anglers sitting by the pond had put it off competing for fish. The lump under its throat is its retracted neck, which bends into an 'S' shape for flight.
