Green Heron, Waiting For The Right Moment

The Green Heron is the one wading bird I see that cannot be perfectly still as they set for a strike. Watching them I find a slight bobbing of their head in the anticipation of the plunge. It’s funny since I find myself feeling the tension and almost moving my head with them, LOL.

In the series below I have captured the strike, image by image, until he finally makes the catch.

I’m not sure I want to know what the prize was.

    1. Hahaha – mosquito fern? Really? Sounds awful! Pity you and Ellen re the hot and humid. You sure live in a wonderful and exciting place but I’d hate the hot and humid part of the year!

    2. January and February. We do go below freezing at night, but not often. Day time is about 40 f. Last winter for the first time in 10 years there was snow. It was cold enough to turn everything to ice for a week.

      Funny, since I grew up with snow and Ellen is from the furthest north you can get in continental US, how it shut us down. Ankle deep but ice. No plows, etc to remove snow. Even the US Air Force base here shut down. I waited until it got warm again. 😀. Went back out with cameras of course.
