Pop up.

While out on the pontoon we came across three immature black crowned night herons.
I got some excellent, in the open shots but this one struck me as having the most character.

Nycticorax nycticorax

 Young Black-crowned Night-Herons leave the nest at the age of 1 month but cannot fly until they are 6 weeks old. They move through the vegetation on foot, joining up in foraging flocks at night.
