Green Heron

Green Heron4365I was photographing some sandpipers when it occurred to me that the whole rest of the world was directly behind me and I should probably turn around to have a look. I’m glad I did because what I saw was a Green Heron catching a frog, and he was just getting started! Besides that poor old frog, he must have eaten a dozen dragonfly nymphs and several small fish in just a few minutes! This is by far the most animated Green Heron I’ve ever had the privilege to watch; he was running back and forth, tip-toeing around, hopping up on logs, crouching down, and the feathers on top of his head were going crazy!
