Description
I was walking along the Greenbelt trail along the Holston River near Netherland Inn in Kingsport, TN. I started my walk along the river at sunrise in hopes of finding either a Cormorant or a Great Blue Heron. When I got near the bridge I saw this Yellow-Crowned Night Heron perched on a rock. I slowly made my way near him and after I grabbed a couple frames, he flew off. I got this frame with the golden light of the sunrise, which matched his orange eye.
