Nothing crazy, just a nice portrait of a beautiful Black-crowned Night Heron standing in the shallow water in some gorgeous evening sunlight. I would have enjoyed an all green background but you take what you can get.

Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
