Great shots, as always, Morris. Went to that local lake a couple of times now looking for our resident Green Heron, but no joy as yet. Did see (and photograph) a GBH and Egret there, but the little guy must have been in hiding. I'll keep trying as time allows.

Thank you Jerry,

These green herons are a lot smaller than those big birds and there well camouflaged.


Yup, plus a couple of other challenges as well.  That particular lake is fairly large, but with only limited access at a couple of points.  There are a host of places where one of those little guys could be hanging out and which would be out of view.  I did find both an egret and GBH, but unfortunately at a good distance and with crummy atmospheric conditions.  I love the pose, but the image lacks sharpness and detail.  I'll keep trying...
