Black Crowned Night Heron - II

Black Crowned Night Herons can sometimes be found near ponds in municipal parks. During the better part of a day they'll be in trees and a little harder to find. But early morning they may still be stalking prey at the water's edge. Today's "5" Star photo was taken at Agua Caliente Park, Tucson, Arizona. It's a nice little park about four miles from us, always with an assortment of ducks, great blue herons, and occasional Black Crowned Night Herons and great egrets. Oh, and a resident pair of great horned owls. The BCNH in this photo let me get very close and, in fact, lay down on my stomach about 10 feet away, using elbows us tripods to get this photo:
