Standing Still (black Crowned Night Heron)
Photo By Isaiah Leggett

  • 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
