Night Heron, Waters Edge

Black-crowned Night Heron hunting along the edge of a swamp.

He made me work for this shot by staying just on the edge in the shadows. Bright sun on the duck weed and chestnuts made for a blinding glare…and a dark bird.

A few quick settings changes and short burst of shots was all I could do before he disappeared. The small Herons are fast flyers so no chance at his exit.
