A White Faced Heron chick pleads for more food while it’s sibling look on. There were three chicks, almost ready to fly, sitting in a gum tree waiting for a feed. The children were hungry! And then along came mum! These are sometimes called Blue Cranes. We hoped the chicks would take their first flight as we watched as they seemed so ready…. but it was not to be.
Taken in Mackay, Far North Queensland, Australia, on a Canon 5D MkIII, 70-200 F2.8 and Canon 2X converter.
