Now that's unkind, putting such a beautiful bird right after the unfortunate bald cardinal!

Lovely lighting, looks like a museum display! Is the second highlight in the eye from a flashgun?

aa I love the Kite picture and the warm colors. That big empty space on left is unbalancing the composition.

not sure if its a genetic defect, or something happened to her.


@p0larbear: I've seen them in North Carolina and Missouri as well.



Here's what the Cornell Ornithology Lab has to say on the subject:

Yeah, I like that, the rare Austrian Dwarf Heron.
"Zwergraureiher" in German, of course.
Have you ever had something similar happen in a photo?

Bernd

That would be the rare Austrian Dwarf Heron.

Or the even rarer Alpine Giant Glowstick.......

Hi guys,

here's a heron shot I took yesterday.
It is nothing spectacular, but somehow the composition made me dizzy,
do you see what is going on here?

regards,
Bernd

rovhazman great DC Cormorant shots. You got his green eyes in that first shot and the double crests.
P0larbear that's a Yellow Crowned Night Heron. Usually sleeping under the canopy of a tree midday and hunts morning and evening.

I had about a 45 minute lunch break today, and went down to the local greenbelt/walking trail and captured something fairly rare for my area.
East TN does not get many birds like this!

I was playing with some other shots before I learned of the existance of this creature! I only seen it for about 10-15 minutes, but here are some of my shots.







all of my images were in direct noonish sunlight today, so not very pleasing for shooting!
Maybe I can get back in the next day or 2 to get some more!

all shot with a700 + 70-300G
