Every so often as I photographed this juvenile Yellow-crowned Night Heron it would angle its head just right so that the top of its eye was slightly covered which gave it a somewhat pissed off look. Thankfully the bird waded into a spot that gave me one of my favorite ways to photograph a heron or egret. When you can get a low enough angle and the water is calm enough, the only thing in focus is the bird. It's nearly impossible to see the fine line of in focus water because of how still it is and to me it gives the impression that the bird is practically floating in space. It wasn't quite calm enough for a mirror like reflection but I did get a decent reflection out of this. I had also kept trying to time a shot to catch the drip of water from its beak and in this one I caught it just before it dropped. The soft light worked rather well for this late in the morning and the bright green marsh grasses are a wonderful summer background. Taken in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. ~ 7/17/17 ~ 1/800 sec at f/4.0 on Manual ~ ISO 400 ~ at 500 mm using a 500 mm f/4 on a NIKON D4S #birds  #birdphotos #bestofbirds #exclusive_wildlife #marvelshots #your_best_birds #waycoolshots #jaw_dropping_shots #bird_brilliance #best_birds_of_ig #bestbirdshots #nuts_about_birds #bestnatureshot #feather_perfection #nature #yellowcrownednightheron #wadingbird #reflection #waterlevelphotography #marsh #njoutdoors

It never gets old watching these little Least Tern chicks get so excited for a parent to return with food. I've learned over the years the easiest way to capture the returning parent and potential fish transfer is to just keep your eye on the chick. There is no mistaking their excited behavior which usually involves running towards the adult while calling out as loud as possible, as if yelling "feed me, feed me". So I simply watch these little ones through the lens and when they start acting up I start shooting and I can usually catch a moment like this whith the incoming adult with a fish hanging from its beak. I wish I could have seen the adult's face and the fish more but after a while I sort of like how this image realy features the chick. The adult becomes a bit secondary because it's facing away and I think that works. Taken along the central New Jersey coastline. ~ 6/28/17 ~ 1/2500 sec at f/4.0 on Manual ~ ISO 200 ~ at 500 mm using a 500 mm f/4 on a NIKON D4S #birds  #birdphotos #birdstagram #bestofbirds #animals #animalsofinstagram #nuts_about_birds #nuts_about_nature #feather_features #feather_perfection #your_best_birds #nature #naturelovers #naturephotos #nature_perfection #wild #wildlife #wildlifephotos #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_perfection #allmightybirds #exclusive_animals #allnatureshots #wildlifeaddicts #bestnatureshots #ig_discover_wildlife #leasttern #babybird #cute #njoutdoors
