Green Heron

 Green Heron

Hunting at a distance from me so this is severely cropped. And the heron was not hunting in the best light, but still I waited and waited for some action and...

Shake that delicious looking froggie!

it was worth the wait.

I am connecting to Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday HERE

That 2nd shot is just delightful (well, except for the frog)! I think we have these green herons here but am not sure. Blue herons, yes. Green, maybe.

That frog is mouth full.

Poor frog! It looks like a completely different bird in the second pic!

We have one like that in our backyard pond. He grabs frogs too. Amazing how they can handle a big frog like that!
