This little fella had the distinction of being the first and only Green Heron I've photographed to date. In fact, it was the first one I had ever seen. One bird, two firsts. They are widespread in Kentucky, but rather elusive. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time and paying attention, albeit I was very surprised. The heron stuck around for no more than five minutes and then disappeared.
