BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON

Black-Crowned Night Heron - 2

This is a good example of being in the right place at the right time, catching the heron just as it was landing. The ISO was low, the lighting was ideal and the shutter speed was high enough so that the bird was sharp. I was happy to capture the drama of the moment and the texture of the heron’s wings.

  1. Congratulations, a stunning image Belinda. We saw the bird on the Yangtze River in China last year. We have the Rufous Night
    Heron here in Southern Australia. My poem The Sentinel is about that bird. Richard Walter

  2. Wow, you really made the most of this moment. A fantastic action shot of this Heron – and they are usually hard to get in action at all!

  3. Stunning photographs indeed, especially this one! I wandered my way here through some other blog but I’m glad I made a pit stop because I am in love with what you put up here. I don’t really have the gift if photography but I’d like to believe that I do fairly well with words. Do stop by my blog to read some anecdotes inspired by everyday moments. Cheers 🙂
