Default Black Crowned Night Heron

This Heron flew in and posed for us as we floated by.

Very good dof, it really makes the bird stand out in the photo. I like the spacing of the subject to the photo, it gives excellent balance to the shot.

Nice detail. How were you floating by? canoe? rowboat? raft?

Thank you everyone taking the time to look and comment.

John, we were in a boat, we just killed the motor and drifted by.

That is so neat. I guess he was not scared of you or the boat.
You captured him very well.

One of my favorite birds to photograph, and you did an outstanding job on that shot. Well done.
