Black Heron / Black Egret (Egretta ardesiaca)

I have captured this Black Heron at Marieval Bird 🐦 Sanctuary early in the morning, as usual. It was a clear sky day, and so go reflection on moving water. It's a Marshland and due to too much reeds it is really tough to get a decent shot along with good composition. But if you have passion on Photography,none can stop you.

Although a new species in my gallery but I had captured this bird picture one year ago. But I wasn't happy what I captured before one year ago, and so I waited and recently I captured this one and I'm impressed. So,it's the right time to add in my list 📃.

This African Heron is well known for its habit of using its wings to form a canopy when fishing 🎣.

Except its Yellow feet, it's totally black.

Black Heron occurs patchily through Sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal 🇸🇳 and Sudan 🇸🇩 to South Africa 🇿🇦. You could find them even in Madagascar 🇲🇬 too.
