Shadowing stranger -- Yellow-crowned Night Heron

A young Yellow-Crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax violaceus) stops to check me out, as I wandered up on his dark shadowing nook of the lagoon in City Park, New Orleans. I think he was more after the shade than trying to find good eats.

This is superb. It looks like he's eying you trying to decide if you're a threat or not!

He looks a little worried about this stranger following him around :)

Good shot!
