Standing Still (black Crowned Night Heron)
- Title: Standing Still (black Crowned Night Heron)
- State/Province/Region: California
- Country: United States
- Nearest Area: San Diego River
- Nearest Town: San Diego
- Best Season: Spring
- Description: An ambush predator, the black crowned night heron will stand motionless for extended periods of time until its prey is within striking distance. Taking advantage of that behavior, I used a slow shutter speed of about 4 seconds to blur the motion of the rushing water, while maintaining a relatively sharp image of the bird.
- Gear: Canon EOS Elan 7, EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L, Velvia 100, Manfrotto 3221 tripod w/ 3 way pan/tilt head, shutter release cable
