CommentI really enjoy photographing the Nankeen Night Heron. The colours, stance and "attitude" are great. I'd been shooting this one for a while in mottled early morning light at Herdsman Lake and he suddenly decided to check me out and stare straight into the lens. The shadows neatly divided the bill and the contrast of the yellow eye in light and in shade is somewhat comical.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mark II plus Canon 500mm f/4L IS II USM
LocationHerdsman Lake, Western Australia
