Great shot Yves and what and experience to get close to the night heron like that. You had very nice lighting on him which really shows him off beautifully.

Thank you very much Debra

An excellent candid capture of the young night heron going about his day. I can see where it really pays to get up with the birds in order to get a shot like this one. Very nicely done Yves.

Clifford Dupuis

What a great capture. The lighting and DOF are spot on as is the lighting that showcases this young one trying so hard to be in the limelight. well done in all respects

Yves Langlois

Thank you very much for the nice comments Clifford.

Juvenile night heron looking for food. Since that bird prefers to be active at night I was very lucky to see it at 8:00 in the morning. May be that one doesn't want to go by the rules or he desperately want to be the star of the day. And he was.
