This black crown heron flew from one perch to another at Mud Lake in Ottawa Ontario Canada. Photographed with a Nikon D3s and Nikon 600 mm lens from a blind after waiting anxiously for hours for a moment like this.

Love the light and split second timing here, Dan. Wonderful image.
Thank you very much Bill; I was quite pleased with this sequence of images as he flew from one perch to another (I may post others of the sequence later)
Looks like he is tippy-towing over the water like a ballerina (Swan Lake perhaps?)…NICE!!!
Thanks; I noticed that and blew it up to look to see if the tip touches the water ; I don’t think so as there is no ripple but it makes for a nice flying ballerina look
Absolutely amazing! Love the details here! Beautifully captured!
Thank you very much Dave & Trena; much appreciate it
