Green heron - Butorides virescens
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This little fellow was on the move (although rather slowly) in the pursuit of fish. So I shot a burst and tried to keep him in the frame. This is the best of the bunch. It is a bit blurred due to motion and the fact that the light changed and reduced my shutter speed to 1/20 of a second. Shot at 420mm hand held.|
It is hard to realize how small these little guys are unless you have seen one or there is something in the photo for scale. They are about the size of a crow.

Splendid shot of the Green Heron on the prowl. Your idea of shooting in a burst helped here and you have captured a marvellous attacking pose and its intensity. Very impressive sharpness and fine focus. I like your POV and the BG admirably illustrates the habitat. Very nicely composed. Kudos.
He is up to something big...
Great shot ! Burst mode has helped me out more than once.. :-)
Super detail and colors are very nice. Good action, you can almost feel the tension in the bird.

Its a great moving image Jim, not too much blur. I like the pov showing his long legs and feet, he's on a mission here. Great colours, focus and good light. Lovely composition.
