    Very nice. Most shots I have of this the neck is not extended. The lighting is just super. As is the one legged pose.

    Never seen, much less heard of a Black Crowned Night Heron before. A delightful picture, as the red of its eye stands out so much. Wonderful!

    Great capture...
    So tell me, was the blind designed for hunting or photography?
    If it was hunting, I am glad you used it for photography!

    Oooooo, I like that shot!! The bird stands out so crisply against the dark background, and I like the, ummm, texture of the rock on which it's posed.
