Night Heron With A Surprise Guest

I was really pleased to catch this Black-crowned Night Heron in flight. He had just dropped out of the island rookery and blew right by me.

Later looking at the RAW image there was a happy surprise. A Dragonfly flying by also. Almost a collision course with the small Heron.

Above appears the Dragonfly shifted course. I’m shooting 10 shoots a second and the first two images above are one after the other.

That Dragonfly was very fast.

The Heron was heading out of the swamp so probably gave the whole thing no thought what so ever.

Me, I’m complete shocked I caught the bird at all.

Charleston, South Carolina.
