A final shot this week from the Living Desert Zoo in Palm Desert, CA. One section of the zoo is a large enclosed area that you enter through double doors – like an airlock – to prevent any of the birds from escaping. This black-crowned night-heron was just sitting patiently pretty much ignoring how close I got to him to take his portrait.
If you enjoy my photographs please consider making a purchase. All of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help support our friends volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa which is a great organization really making a difference in the community. Every little bit makes a difference, even a small digital download for your desktop!
