What do you get if you cross a parrot with a shark?

A bird that will talk you ear off!

Interesting Fact: A breeding Black-crowned Night-Heron will brood any chick that is placed in its nest. The herons apparently don’t distinguish between their own offspring and nestlings from other parents. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black-crowned_Night-Heron/lifehistory )

  1. There is a definite feel of an icy-blue chill in the air with this photo. The heron says it all.

    • I agree, he does. Thank you very much, I am very glad that you enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging. πŸ™‚

  2. πŸ™‚ scrolling through your blog … your titles are great! πŸ™‚ What lens are you using?

    • Thank you very much, I appreciate that very much. I have few lenses that I use for different shots. Wildlife shots I usually shoot with a tamron lens 150-600mm f/5-6.3 or Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 witch I also use for landscape and portrait. But I also use 35mm f/1.8 or 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6. Every thing depends on the light and surrounding. Happy Blogging. πŸ™‚

      • WAU, now that is a diverse collection! Didn’t see that one coming. πŸ˜‰ I asked ’cause I saw some nice photos of yours that are very up close but of animals that get scared easily.
        Back attcha. πŸ™‚

      • Oh yeah they do get scared very easily. Most of my close up shots I had to sit in one spot for hours with our movement. There was tons of time I freezing or hungry but i waited and got the shot. So sometimes was because of the lens but most of the time was just being patient. Thank you for taking the interest. Happy Blogging. πŸ™‚

      • I know what you mean by doing anything and everything JUST to get that one shot. πŸ™‚ Props to you.
