Panama has an amazing restaurant scene, everything is made from scratch and there is a broad range of cuisine available to suit every palette. It is also a great way to people watch –you never know who might drop in!
One evening we were enjoying dinner outside on the Bay of Panama and we noticed a heron sitting on the roof line of the restaurant. Of course we didn’t have a camera with us but this Black-crowned Night-Heron was incredibly patient and waited 10 minutes for us to grab the camera and come back to the restaurant. It continued to pose for about half an hour because it was waiting for an opportunity to grab one of the fish swimming below. We were very lucky he sat in one of the restaurant’s spot lights otherwise we would never have captured this shot because we don’t use flash on wildlife.
