Black-Crowned Night-Heron Foraging

Here is a series of images from a previous trip to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville New Jersey. Now that I am fully retired and closed my studio, I have time to go through images from previous photo outings that I have on my backup drives. This is a series of images of a Black-crowned Night-heron in breeding plumage, foraging for a meal. It was darting back and forth really working this area in one of the channels along the Wildlife Drive. It was fun to watch the Night-Heron and also be close enough to the Wildlife Drive to get closeup images.

    • Thanks Donna! This was at a corner of the drive before a bend where the Wildlife Drive is very close & looking down at the water. I was using a Canon 1D MkIV (1.3 crop body) with a 400mm Canon DO lens with a 1.4x Teleconverter. So the Field of View was equivalent to 728mm on a full frame body. So I did not have to crop the image much.

    • Thanks Steve! I liked the red eyes and the breeding plume on the back of the head. They are fun to photograph as they are constantly moving and darting around!
