You may remember back on May 23, I posted about the nesting of Yellow-Crowned Night Herons. Click here to see that post. Here is what the chicks look like today. How soon they grow up. 🙂
I shot this with my Canon EOS 7D and Canon 100-400mm lens. Exposure was 1/250 @ f9 at ISO 400. Fill flash was used because of the dense shade in the tree. There were actually four chicks. The one on the right has his beak in his feathers as if he is preening. A fourth, is out of the picture, standing on a twig to the left. Click on the image to see an enlargement.
