Black Crowned Night Heron by MaryinMaine

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

We were taking my nephew and niece for a drive along the ocean today, looking at the waves and the beautiful colors. On the way back, on the other side of the street, my nephew spotted this heron. My sister did a turn around and we went back to find he was still there! We took a few pics thru the window as we didnt want to scare him off. I finally got out of the car to see how close he would let me get before leaving. I got about ten steps closer before he flew off, but I got a couple of good shots. This is one of them.

I have a camera.
I take LOTS of photos.
I add many of them to Redbubble!
