I had been questioning why there were so few Green Herons around. Last year the swamps had so many we basically stopped photographing them.
It seems they have moved a mile closer to the rivers. We walked a marsh the other day and found plenty. Of course most moved off quickly, but I did get a few shots.
The bird above was hiding along the banks, the edge of the woods actually, under branches. I took 2 quick shots in changing light.
I’m just not kneeling around the muck as much as I once did. You might say it’s age, I say wisdom.
