This huge heron gave a mallard a real scare as he came into land. The young heron was looking for the perfect fishing spot when it decided to land on a log floating in a small lake.
A female mallard quacked her annoyance at the disturbance before being scared away and flying off. Automotive designer Christopher Schlaf spotted the incoming Great Blue Heron, which has a wide wingspan of around 6.5ft (2m), in a small lake near his home in Romeo, Michigan, USA.
