The Black-Crowned Night Heron

Sandy-in-Alaska-100x-1001I found this heron in the typical hunched, inactive position on the shore of a pond in Florida. They are nocturnal, flying to feed at night and roosting in trees during the day.
He treated me to a close-up look on the ground in broad daylight. He let me appreciate his beautiful coloring and bright red eyes in detail. When he was tired of me, he flew across the pond, treating me with these images.
