The Teaser/ Camera Critters

 Green heron atop a dead branch

This elusive green heron was a big tease. It sat way above my head (I cropped this photo considerably) and watched me. Luckily the light was good. When I tried to move in closer...

 Atop a second branch

it flew to another branch!  I think it was more annoyed with me than afraid. But finally it grew bored with me and then...

it flew away.

At least he was polite enough to tsay long enough for a couple of good photos.

Wonderful! I love herons and this green one is a real stunner! Happy Critter Day!

Kate said...

Again, great photos. Birds don't often cooperate but you did a great job with this one!! You were as wily as he as you relentlessly "stalked" him.

Roan said...

He's a beauty even if he isn't cooperative.

Beautiful, EG. I am not sure that I have ever seen a green heron. Some that were possibilities, but none as clearcut as this one. Nice.

Excellent shots, EG. Wowee!! is all I can say. I have never seen a Green Heron that I know of. I thought maybe--but maybe not--and of course no picture so who knows.
They must be as flighty as the Great Blues are. MB
