Thirsty little fella

An adult Black Crowned Night Heron at the Juron Bird Park (Singapore). Not sure why they call it a Night Heron - this one was snapped right in the middle of the day. It's a common wetlands bird, so no surprise that it was examining the water for food.

I took this shot using my cousin's Canon 300mm f/4 IS. A very nice sharp lens as you can see! My shopping list keeps growing....

Wow! The bird almost looks as if the colour has been painted on, it's so clean.

It's a beautiful picture, are these herons as shy/timid as those here in UK?
A beautiful shot with a stop action drop.
