A few of my favourite things..

Nankeen Night Heron

This strangely proportioned heron was fishing from the edge of the jetty.  I dearly would have liked to touch its feathers: there was something special about them – perfectly groomed, or super fine; I’m not even sure what it was about them that made the bird so appealing.

  1. OH! OH! That is beautiful. I hate to overuse stunning but, well, it is stunning. I hope the bird-shooters all see this.

  3. Burstmode, I appreciate your kind words, thank you.

    Vimal, thanks; The detail of those tempting feathers can better be seen in the close ups I took of it’s upper body, but then you don’t see the funny little stubby tail. Thanks for your visit.

    Hi,

    We are putting together an interpretation sign at out bird hide in Cape Range National Park in Western Australia and we are chasing an image of a Nankeen Night Heron for our education board on birds.

    Cape Range is a very popular park amongst a shortly to be listed World Heritage area. We have a lot o f visitors come thru our park and we like to educate people on all things conservation.

    We really like this shot and would like to know what we can do to use this image?

    Hope to hear back from you soon.

    Regards tony
