Night Heron

While going through my vast library of images to find some images for a client, I ran across some images I made from the kayak a couple of years ago and had never posted. So, today’s featured subject is the night heron. In particular, a juvenile Yellow-crowned Night Heron.

While kayaking a local Missouri waterway, I ran across this juvenile, who was rather accepting of me. Here are a couple of favorite images:

I don’t often see the adults, who are much more distinguishable between species (Yellow-crowned vs. Black-crowned). But the juvies are fun, too!

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 1D Mark 3 body
  • Canon 100mm-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS lens + Canon 1.4 TC
  • Handheld, from my kayak
  • ISO 400
  • Aperture f/8
  • Shutter Speed 1/125 sec.
