Black-Crowned Night Heron

By richmowil    
This image was made on Lake Tisza in Hungary a few years ago. Lockdown is making me re-visit some folders and its amazing what is in there that has never been used. I was afloat on a punt and this gives a wonderful opportunity if you manage to get close to your subject. It was my first attempt and I do hope I will revisit this method when we are releasedWinkWinkWink

Many thanks for you votes, comments and user awards, all much appreciated.

Have the best day you can according to your tier and i'll catch up with your images later in the day.
