With the heat of summer settling in, my after work photo excursions have been limited as the wildlife hides from the hot temperatures. Today, instead, I spent my lunch hour at Denver City Park with these beautiful birds.
In this sequence, a juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron doesn’t want to share its spot of the pond with a similarly young Snowy Egret. Mama Egret swoops in though and sets the young ones straight. It was a lot of fun to watch.
