Green heron (Butorides virescens) on a log in Tiny Marsh
This heron is patiently crouching with it's eyes focused to below the water. It's hoping to surprise a fish. No luck so far but...
Bending down to catch a fish
a little later it captured this fish. Notice how in the first photo the heron's neck looked short and fat but in this photo it's actually quite long.
Eating the fish
Here the heron doesn't look green. But close up and in good light, it's back is a deep green.
