    Yellow Crowned Night Heron...

    As I mentioned in a previous post of a sunrise recently I was on Sanibel Island, Florida. That island is home to the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is made up mostly of Mangrove islands and the open water between them. This bird frequents the mangrove thickets. This is the first time I photographed this bird, my first impression looking through the viewfinder was... what a large orange eye. Since this bird does much of it's hunting at night a large eye would definitely be an advantage. C&C welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    Lovely! I like the last 3 the best because the background isn't as busy. Especially love #3 because of the colors. What beautiful feathers!

    Fantastic set of shots Joe. You've really nailed it with clarity and exposure - and what an interesting bird.

    Great series Joe! All are nice but I like 4 and 5 for the color, clarity and the fact he has his meal.

    Thanks Dave, your comments are apreciated. The birds were close, the lighting wonderful which enhanced and allowed the clarity and exposure. A very interesting bird, first time I have seen and photographed it in Florida.

    Thanks Paul, I have been wondering where you have been. Many of your birds must be migrating now. Keep shooting my friend.
