Juvenile Night Heron
Friday I got hit by a woman who was too busy texting to drive. My car doesn't even seem to have a scratch on it but I got a bit of a concussion. I also got a night off work which I didn't enjoy thanks to the dizzy, nauseous feeling. But the doctor said it would be fine to go on my Cape May trip on Saturday I just had to talk Kim into driving me. (Thank you Kim!) She dragged me a bit reluctantly to Cape May Point State Park where we had a fabulous time and came upon this Juvenile Night Heron (black crowned, I believe) hanging out right near the bridge. And finally a bird sits close enough for my 200mm lens. You can even see the nictitating membrane at work, half closed in the fourth photo and fully closed in the last.
