Species: Black Crowned Night Heron | Location: Ephrata, PA, United States
At this rookery, the black-crowned night herons were busy building their nest getting ready for the little ones to arrive. They were flying around getting twigs and taking them to the female for her to place them in the nest. This one was flying back to the nest without a twig. I had to laugh because when he went back she gave him an earful.

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.
