Species: Black Crowned Night Herons | Location: Pennsylvania, United States
There is a rookery near me and every year a group of black crowned night herons come to have young. I love observing these amazing birds. I really like getting them in flight with twigs in their beaks.
Check out Bill's Website for more of his nature and wildlife photography.
About The Photographer
I have done photography for 40 years, off and on. I never really combined my love of nature and my love of photography until a number of years ago. The last 6 years I have gotten more serious about it and have become addicted to bird photography. But I love all nature and will attempt to take a picture of anything I come across. I became disabled 12 years ago. Photography helped me to stop feeling sorry for myself and stop looking at all I can not do, and to do what I still can do. So if my chronic pain is not too bad, I go see what I can find. Living on disability makes travel and buying equipment hard to do. But I am blessed beyond my means with the equipment I have thanks to some very generous people. I can still walk some, thank God, but I am limited to where I can get to in my powerchair, though people are amazed where I do take it. Everything I shoot is from my powerchair or my car.
