    Perfect timing for an absolutely stunning capture of a Black Crowned Night Heron! Perfectly exposed with wonderful dof! : )

    The pose, the spot pattern in the wings, the perfect light in the eye, the slightly gawky nature of this juvenile all catch my eye, Michael! Another one you have got to get into some groups! AMR

  • I am fairly new to RB and have joined a couple of groups, I will do more research into other groups. Thank you for your Kind comments I really appreciate the feedback.
