Wow! You actually saw him fall? And then spent four hours tracking his progress? Wow...again! Wonderful detailed capture, and great composition. The back-lit bill against the black shadow is wonderful. #10514361

I did not actually witness the fall, but spent the big part of the day, easily 6 or 7 hours, with an eye on this little fella. While doing numerous other things, of course. This is a place you cannot walk into for 30 minutes ... it grabs you and holds you! If you arrive after breakfast and have will-power, you'll be home for supper!! #10538899

Description

Ardea alba

This youngster is drying after becoming water-logged following a fall from the nest. It took about four hours to finally work his way out of the drink onto dry land.
