[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Observed this heron for a while as it stalked its prey. When it finally struck captured the heron's success. It next flew off for dinner alone.

The Yellow-crowned Night Heron (Nyctanassa violacea, formerly placed in the genus Nycticorax), also called the American Night Heron or squawk, is a fairly small heron. It is found throughout a large part of the Americas, especially (but not exclusively) in warmer coastal regions; an example occurrence is the Petenes mangroves of the Yucatan.
