Close Encounter

photocrati galleryOn one of our last days on the island of Lesbos (early May), we witnessed an unusual encounter. The Little Bittern seemed injured, since it made the impression it couldn’t fly away when this curious horse came close. First it tried to move away from the horse. But when it was clear the horse was quiker, it erected itself and angrily picked at the horse. Which jumped back! And peace was back again, hopefully long enough for the Bittern to recover. In any case, we were surprised that this little heron was brave enough to counter the horse 😉
