Black-Crowned Night Heron

Sorry about the lack of posts. I’ve been very busy — end of the semester, end of the fiscal year, all that nonsense.

But yesterday, I had my 300mm f/4.5 and cobbled together half an hour at lunch to walk around with it, and I was rewarded with a rare, close-up appearance by one of the local Black-Crowned Night Herons. I’ve hardly ever gotten this close before, and I’ve never had a chance to get shots like this. I suggest clicking through to flickr and then going to “all sizes” to look at them a bit larger.

Later that day, I also got some less impressive (but hey, I’ll take what I can get) shots of the terns using my 180mm f/2.8 P:
