Brian, Cool captures of the Green Heron!

He's a beaut! You got three excellent poses from him. This is probably the most detail I've seen of the green heron. Bravo!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Nice shots- all! You must be exceptionally quiet while taking photos. I would have definitely scared him off bumbling around trying to get the shot. These are awesome!

The photos of the little green heron are sharp and very, very good. It is nice see photos of this bird in the tree and not wading in the water. I really like these.

I love green herons (or any herons)..but we don't see the green ones until we go to Florida for the winter (guess they don't live in this part of Oregon)....Your pictures (as always) are just amazing.
