Juvenile Tricolored 001
A juvenile Tricolored Heron (Egretta Tricolor) hunting for small minnows in the waters of Horsepen Bayou, Texas, USA.
Photograph taken handheld from my Ascend H12 kayak.
There is no crop on this image. My lens has a minimum focus distance of 4 1/2 feet and in the 1 hour 20 minutes I watched him hunt he would regularly get to close for my lens to focus. He even pecked on my kayak once when I first got there as if to say I was in his hunting spot.
