Black-crowned Night Heron
Though widespread in wetlands habitats, the retiring, nocturnal Black-crowned night heron is observed less often than diurnal herons and egrets. night herons forage mostly between dusk and dawn but will also take prey during the day. Night herons are omnivores even taking small nestlings of other birds, During the day, it roosts communally or singly in dense vegetation, where it can often be observed closely.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
