Hello friends, the title should be :
« The Black-crowned Night-Heron in fishing action »
but they was not enough place for that long title.

1/2000s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« Black-crowned Night-Herons are stocky birds compared
to many of their long-limbed heron relatives. They’re most
active at night or at dusk, when you may see their ghostly
forms flapping out from daytime roosts to forage in wetlands.

In the light of day adults are striking in gray-and-black
plumage and long white head plumes. These social birds
breed in colonies of stick nests usually built over water.
They live in fresh, salt, and brackish wetlands and are
the most widespread heron in the world. »

Hello Asbed,
A fine picture og the night heron, very good sharpness (Nikon 85mm is a very sharp lens) and a fine composision.
Maybe a bit lack of contrast but nevertheless the picture is fine.
Well done, of.
