I saw this "Black Crown Night Heron" flying towerd me and it looked like a Bomber swooping by.

BLACK CROWNED NIGHT HERON: Nycticorax nycticorax (Latin from Greek: nykitikorax, night raven).

DESCRIPTION: The Black crowned night heron is a small long-legged wader, standing 23-28 inches tall with a wingspan of 45 inches. The night heron has a heavy, chunky body, short thick neck, short legs and heavy, sharply pointed, black bill. The adult's head has a black cap with a fallen crest of 2-3 narrow white plumes at the back of their head. Their eyes are ruby red. They have a black back and white belly. Their wings and tail are grey and their legs and feet are usually yellow but turn quite red in the early part of the nesting season. The young or immature black crowned night herons are brown and streaked with white.

Excellent detail of this in-flight heron. I am sure he was moving fast. Good composition, too.

Hi Adam.
You are mistaken. It is not B52. This is B-52 (http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe/Ukraine/photo63877.htm) (-:)))

Perfect POV and details of the bird. Nice coloured sky, perfect DOF and exposure. May be you have taken this bird in series. It will be very interesting. My compliments and TFS.
