I haven't posted anything in quite a while so I thought I'd share a Green Heron I caught the last weekend.

Nice- these are a bit busy, but I like them regardless. Nice colors and sharpness.

Those are EXTRA sharp shots of a Greenie, due in part to the strong lighting I guess as well as your perfect focus. Was there a strong sun reflection bouncing up off the water under it making the bright light areas?

Thank you Lee
The bird was actually in the shade mostly about an hour after sunrise, but a few rays of sun filtered through the leaves and caught Him. One of those times you know you got a keeper when you see it in the viewfinder.

Thanks cdurfor, We have alot more Great Blues here so I get excited when I can catch a Greenie. I usually just scare them away.

I think you are right Adam, I cropped the fist one a little and like it better.
Thanks for the C&C

Same here, we have a lot of Great Blues but I have yet to catch a Greenie so I am jealous.
Nice shot BTW

Excellent! Greens are very shy and hard to catch.

Thanks Oren, Egrets are scarce here also, but I saw one the other day so I'll be looking for them now.
