As a Wildlife Photographer, I always look for unique and interesting moments to capture in the wild. Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph a juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-Heron scratching.

I photographed this Yellow-crowned Night-Heron in an area called Minor’s Cove, which is at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.
