[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This young Black-crowned Night-Heron was seating (with other 5 ones) on the dam at the end of the pond in my neighborhood park. All the other flew away before I could see them better, but this one (he has a bit silly expression) probably forgot what his mom told him to do when strangers as me get too close.
I took the picture trough a chain link fence.
Done in Wabukayne Park - Mississauga

Hola Mario. Exelente foto. Gran colorido y nitidez. Luis52.

Hello Mario,
This is a beautiful capture of this nice bird with great composition and exposure. A smaller aperture would probably have made its body sharper but details on its head (where it is important IMHO) are very good. Thanks,

Hi Mario, this does look like a young Heron. Although his/her plumage is not yet full he looks very smart in this beautiful capture. Light, tone and colour is wonderful and all is pin sharp with a great pov. I think he may be the brave and better one, he knows that most humans are stupid and he can get the fish! Maybe? Wonderful shot.

TFS Michel

Magnifique, quelles couleurs, détails superbes et très beau Bg qui le met en valeur.

Hi Mario

Good BG colours. Well composed shot. Nice clarity especially the eye. TFS.

Hi Mario,
you have done very well with this photo as I too have tried to take shots through a chain link fence and have not got good shots such as this one.You have very good detail on the bird's head and a little softness elsewhere but for that, this is a great looking capture.Tfs. Bob
