Yellow-crowned Night-Heron catching a meal - Florida


Yellow-crowned Night Heron catching a snack:

I recorded this video, using my regular gear for bird photography - My Gear - on my December trip to Fort De Soto, Florida. Due to the unfavorable weather, I arrived later in the morning that I preferred. I didn’t see much birds at the lagoon but this hunting heron caught my eye and decided to hang around for few minutes and record some videos. I’m pretty happy with my decision. More photos and video from that trip coming soon :)
