Black Crowned Night Heron (Three Photographs)

I came across this bird just as it was getting out of the lake and shaking the water off much like dogs do. This Heron was quite a character. I much prefer when animals are doing something rather than static shots. Being in the right place at the right time and capturing photos that are not confusing to the viewer is easier said than done. Often you come away with a large number of shots that end up being discarded and only a few that work like these did.

  2. Victor, I found the image of this bird shaking off the water excellent and fascinating. It brought back the realization that I’d seen birds do this but never connected it with dogs. Thank you for the insight.
