Black-crowned Night Heron

This is a Black-crowned Night Heron at a golf course water feature in Borrego springs, California last Saturday night.  These guys hold so still while looking for fish that is was able to use 1/6 th of a second to blur the water, and yet the heron is crispy sharp.

    Wonderful shot — I’ve never seen a heron like this one.
