Green Heron/ Weekend Reflections

 Juvenile green heron and it's reflection

Stalking this green heron has been my obsession for the past few weeks. On Wednesday, the heron humoured me and sat for a photo shoot.

I didn't know there was a GREEN heron. I would have pursued one if I ever took a picture of something that wasn't a person. Or a pair of shoes.

Karen said...

Fantastic, and it posed so nicely for you.

Did you have leaves and branches attached to your pants, shirt and hat?!
Happy weekend

I suppose he thinks you might stop stalking him now that you got your shot. But we both know you won't!

Squatty little guy.

We have several varieties of herons here on the Gulf Coast but I am not sure that we have the green herons. This is a great capture and congratulations on getting this young bird to sit for your photo opp!

Bises,

Francisca said...

The green heron sure did pose for you... and at the perfect spot for a grand reflection!

Margaret said...

Love herons - around here it is the blue. Love the reflection shot in the water.

Rose said...

Love that reflective shot!

I like this one! I prefer the first shot. When I saw these images my brain clicked into B&W mode because I know these photos would be even better in mono. LOL

Limar said...

Oo, that's a fantastic shot! And a beautiful bird :)
