[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This two young Green Heron (Butorides virescens) had just come out of their nest and were climbing around in the tree, where the nest was. There was only water all around and I took this pic from a boat. Quite difficult - moving birds on a moving boat!

The green heron is a small heron of North and Central America. Green herons are seasonally monogamous. The pairs form in the breeding range, after an intense courtship display by the males, who select the nesting sites and fly in front of the female noisily and with puffed-up head and neck plumage. They nest in forest and swamp patches, over water or in plants near water.

Considering the trying shooting conditions, the result has turned out to be quite good, Pierre. Despite those obstructions, we get a pretty good impression of the two Herons.
Enjoy your trip!
