I like to think of this blog as part chronicle and part photo gallery. Some photographs will be just reportorial. Others will seek to pierce the veil into a world of heightened perception, a world of drama or beauty, or both.

This photo falls into the former category. It is always reassuring to see one of these secretive birds, and to know that despite all the problems besetting our environment, the beautiful Black-crowned Night-Heron is still with us.

This is a juvenile bird, perched atop eponymously named Heron Rock, and captured in poor light on August 16, 2012, at 7:20 pm.
