This Heron perched at "petai" tree (Parkia speciosa) at my backyard. Exacatly at the same branches as my previous buzzard. This branches is sure a favourite landing site.

Hi Tabib,
A beautiful capture of this pond heron. Excellent details and a fine composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Assalamualaikum Redzlan,
So finally this heron made its entry and captured brilliantly with the use of flash. Just look at the details in the head and those beautiful feather. Petai tree is always good for snapping up birds because of the loose small leaves and better still when the tree shed all its leaves once a year. Well done for another brilliant post. I like it!
