These shots below are of newly fledged birds born only three months ago. Well, they are not strictly on their own, still sharing a common roost. But here they are.

All shots except for the very last one were shot in the same spot.

This kid below. an immature Black Crowned Night Heron, I am sorry to say simply acted like a "Dork." Couldn't seem to do anything right...

And here's what he's going to look like in two years.

These are some shots of a newly fledged Little Blue Heron. Looking quite innoscent and sweet.

In this shot he's actually looking at the same boot in the image of the Adult Black Crowned Night Heron...

Never seen that before!

Actually it's a form of crab, that mimics a boot. Wait till it's pray get's close and then stuff's it inside where it is asphixiated...

Evolution in progress thanks to the highly competitive life style of creatures living in Brooklyn. I ran out of flash cards, or you would have seen that "boot" eat the Heron.

I really like the adult blue heron, the last shot:!: What are your other shots ISO's?I love getting out early and getting shots too, but it seems I always have to bump up my ISO a bit.

I'm shooting just in ISO 800. Noise Ninha and Noiseware Professional make this possible. Without them I would shoot in ISO 400/500. Once in a blue moon I need them not. Oddly enough two of the Juv. Black Crowned Night Heron shots didn't need noise removal - go figure.
