(Nycticorax nycticorax)

Hello TN Friends!
Today I present another picture from my last encounter with this species while fishing... a pic taken from the car in a grey morning... the day before when I found this place on the river side I only saw them eating shrimps.This day they caught lots of fishes in front of me.Without any kind of fear to my presence...

About the fish :):The Mullet... please visit:

About the bird is the second time I photograph it but this time on it's feeding place.Is a common bird on the Mondego valley/estuary but in general they don't allow great approximation.
About the species:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nycticorax

Have a good day and thanks for viewing...

Bonjour Jose,
Encore une très belle et très réaliste scène de la vie sauvage habilement restituée ; sans vouloir la dévaloriser je préfère ta précédente publication sur le même sujet car il y est mieux représenté.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
