    Hi all,


    Here's another Black Crowned Night Heron from about a week ago at the Jersey Shore. In post, I did some tonal adjustments, some noise reduction, sharpened and brushed over some busy brown twigs in the RHC. Slight crop. Wish that one bush didn't meet the beak.


    Camera: Nikon D500
    Lens: 200-500mm f/5.6 at 500mm
    Specs: 1/1250 ISO 500 f/7.1


    Thanks for looking!
    Alex

    I have always liked environmental images like these, like the contrast between that red eye and the greens.

    I always love the red eye on these guys and they are so contrasty they stick out from the scene beautifully. Nice green background for this guy and the details and light angle look Great also. Well done
