Yellow-crowned Night Heron, Tarpon Bay

Yellow-crowned Night Heron, Tarpon Bay

No drama in this one, a simple shot.

Rarely do I see the Yellow-crowned out in the open. Tarpon Bay, Florida looks to be the exception. Several times these shy birds were out in the shallows.

  1. Very true about not seeing them out in the open. The few I’ve seen were just yards from me but I didn’t even notice them for several minutes; they sat silently in the foliage. Great photo! I love the reflection, the pastel pink and blue glow, and the dark ripples on the water. William — “What a wildly wonderful world, God! You made it all, with Wisdom at Your side, made earth overflow with your wonderful creations.” Psalms 104 The Message
