STOPS ALONG THE WAY

BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

24 Comments

Like many herons, the Black-crowned night heron can stalk its prey for longer than I have the patience to watch. With a catch or not they make for excellent subjects, as they stand so still allowing me to take many photographs. This spot on the lake is always a popular fishing spot, and the lighting always adds interest to the scene.

  1. Of course one of my favorites…a heron. Nice shots. The young are out moving around on their own down here.

  5. Wow I am so impressed. That species is hard to just catch a glimpse of, never mind getting good pictures.

  6. How neat you saw it on the ground! I always see them in trees or shrubs. The images are so sharp, and the light is lovely. I love that moss at the base of the tree too.
