14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Black-crowned Night Heron on Branch Over Lake

I had just purchased a Nikon D7100 and a Nikon af-s 80-400mm lens. I wanted to test both out so I went to Wilde Lake in Columbia, Maryland. I got lucky as this Black-crowned Night Heron was on a branch and not obstructed by foliage.
