Are you familiar with the theory that birds evolved from dinosaurs? Have you ever looked at a Sparrow or Dove and thought “no way that can be right”? Remember how the Velociraptor looked in the Jurassic Park movies?
Well, I captured this Yellow-Crowned Night-Heron from about 25 feet with my EF 300mm f/4 IS USM + 1.4x extender. He was just standing at the edge of the water watching an alligator swim on past. As I began shooting, he quickly turned my direction and flashed me this look. That evolution theory sounds fairly reasonable now, doesn’t it?
