Lucky you for seeing one of these beauties so close. I’ve only ever seen one high up in a tree at dusk. A lovely shot to begin with at NPN. Welcome!

Thanks. Here is one of him in flight, but slightly out of focus

Hi Eduard! How awesome, I love both your photos of this bird. I would see a Night Heron pretty regularly on the Genesee River when I lived in Rochester, NY. But it was always early morning and too dark for my camera. This turned out so sharp and detailed! Very nice, what length lens?

These were shot with 300mm with a 1.4TC on a m43 sensor. So 840mm FF equivalent

My main birding setup is the Olympus EM1 Mk II + 300mm F4 + 1.4TC.
