Nature Photography – Green Heron

Here’s a shot I took a few weeks ago. The Green Heron is one of the most colorful small birds I’ve ever seen. They are also great subjects and will stand perfectly still in the sun for 30 – 40 minutes at a time. I don’t generally get the same opportunities from their larger cousin the Great Blue Heron.
