Peter Baye was kayaking on the Navarro River when he saw this adult Black-crowned Night Heron.
Peter let his kayak drift towards the Heron and didn't move. As he said, it worked! Peter got a great photo. I love the reflection in the river.
Several years ago Peter photographed the juvenile below. There sure is quite a difference in coloring.
Kayaking on one of the Coast's wild rivers - sounds idyllic, doesn't it? Thanks to Peter for allowing me to share his photos with you here.
