Something new and different
Unfortunately, my claim to fame was short-lived as the bird unruffled its feathers and resumed a more normal, Yellow-crowned Nigh-Heron stance. Adding insult to injury, the "tiny gap" in the branches was a bit TOO tiny to allow me a stick free image. So instead of infamy, I got an almost wonderful image of a blurry stick..... too bad that Night-Heron ruined it by getting all in focus behind it though! ;p
As the sun finally set, I packed my gear away, and found myself wishing all photographic subjects could be as co-operative as owls!
