A Black Crowned Night Heron in the trees resting and watching carefully.

These birds stand still at the water’s edge and wait to ambush prey, mainly at night or early morning. They primarily eat small fish, crustaceans, frogs, aquatic insects, small mammals and small birds. During the day they rest in trees or bushes

My name is Dawne Dunton, I’ll be honest and say I can’t really call myself an artist or a professional photographer. I’ve never taken a class, I’m purely an amateur that wants to be more. I take photos of just about everything that catches my eye, and I mean everything. Some of my photos may be odd to you, but I like the odd. I hope you enjoy what I see!!
