Stationality : Resident and individual populations appear migratory neárticos. Also, they carry out seasonal movements pronounced, related to the changes of the level of the water in his habitat.


Feeding : They stay quiet or they walk sigilosamente to catch fish with a fast movement (similar to the one of a lance). On the other hand, they are intolerantes to each other when feeding itself, and due to this they are scattered to the maximum throughout the area available.

Hello Ricardo,

I really enjoy the pose of this magnificent bird!
His attitude says "I'm King of this log, don't even dare to think otherwise!"...
Well framed, fine details!

Greetings,

Hola Ricardo,
Muy lida la imagen de la garza, me gusta el fondo acuático y sus reflejos. La exposición es dificil siempre, pero dentro de todo manejaste muy bien el extremo blanco de su plumaje
Saludos
Hernán
