Black Heron / Black Egret (Egretta ardesiaca)

I have captured this Black Heron at Marieval Bird 🐦 Sanctuary early in the morning, as usual. It was a clear sky day, and so go reflection on moving water. It's a Marshland and due to too much reeds it is really tough to get a decent shot along with good composition. But if you have passion on Photography,none can stop you.

Although a new species in my gallery but I had captured this bird picture one year ago. But I wasn't happy what I captured before one year ago, and so I waited and recently I captured this one and I'm impressed. So,it's the right time to add in my list πŸ“ƒ.

This African Heron is well known for its habit of using its wings to form a canopy when fishing 🎣.

Except its Yellow feet, it's totally black.

Black Heron occurs patchily through Sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡³ and Sudan πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡© to South Africa πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦. You could find them even in Madagascar πŸ‡²πŸ‡¬ too.
