Heron perched on my dinghy

I threw back my canvas hatch cover to find this bird perched on my water tender. Quickly I scrambled back inside for my old Pentax. After taking for what seemed like forever to line up the split prism I snapped two shots manually advancing the film. The second was of him winging away with a squawk of suprise.. Had I a titch more shutter speed you’d be seeing that one rather than this. In perfect flight wing tips like bent fingers. Back to drinking my morning coffee. Two months later I unwrapped this developed slide. It’ll do!
