Unfortunately the goldfish farm owner killed the entire family (male, female and chick). Again a not recent shot.
Sony A700, Minolta 400 4.5, 200 i.s.o., f. 8, 1/500 sec., full frame.
Thanks for looking.

Botaurus, great behavior pose and image, that's one heck of a long neck stretch, love how they clutch on to those reeds.  Very sad story though.

Isn't it against the law to kill them?
Sad story, beautiful image.

Many forum users protested violently at the country's authorities. There was also a service of a national TV and the two brothers was also accused of having fired in an area prohibited by the proximity of housing. The breeding of goldfish was interrupted.

Great clear view of a bird that's hard to capture. Sad ending.
