A heron eating
Lens: Pentax A 80-200 Camera: K-S2 Photo Location: Venezuela ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F7.1

This is a rufescent tiger heron, in Venezuela we call them "pájaro vaco"; it's incredible how some animal names vary between languages!
I took this picture in one of the parks of my city, while some birds roam freely, it isn't their natural environment. Still, I think it felt right at home! It was eating (whatever it is that it was eating) really close to two vultures that also candidly posed to my camera

Nice shot of this interesting {at least to me} bird.
