From my vacation in Panama

The rufescent tiger heron (Tigrisoma lineatum), also known as the soco-boi, is a species of heron in the Ardeidae family.
Though diligent and quiet, observers may encounter this reclusive heron standing still along sluggish streams and backwater swamps. The Rufescent Tiger-Heron generally is the least-frequently encountered of the three species of Tigrisoma, and is considered uncommon to rare through much of its range. However, towards the southern end of its range, where it becomes the only Tiger-Heron present, they become more common and easier to see.

Good low point of view.I can't say 'masterwork' or 'stunning image' or 'perfect sharpness'.Those who have written these,are surely low graded photographer,coz they can't see too much shrpening on the back made the feathers rough and whitish.Mainly a few old members who coments those pictures,still haven't given him 2 points in his picture.You know that.Rgds-Harris
