Green Heron taking off

We don't get to see many Green Heron's, and I am assuming this is one as I am by no means an expert.  When we walked down to the lake on our walk around Meadowlark, we disturbed this pretty bird.  Actually there were two, one that looked like an adult and a smaller juvenile.  The last time I saw a Green Heron was on a vacation several years ago.


I will be linking with Anni's Bird D'Pot, Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday 
and Michelle's Nature Notes.

Oh yes...one of my favorites. They're so pretty with all their colored feathers of mixed greens/wines/yellows. LOVE this photo Denise.

Magnificent looking bird. Love it that you can see the feathers so clearly on that outstretched wing.

I've never seen one. I do love their color. This is a lovely shot! You must have had your camera poised and ready. :)

Annie said...

Lovely and graceful. I take it that the green is subtle and perhaps iridescent??

So majestic, but where's the "green"? LOL

Linda said...

Absolutely awesome capture, Denise!

You did a great job catching the beautiful heron in flight. I find that hard to do.

Linda said...

Excellent! Congratulations on catching him in flight!

Debbie said...

Gorgeous bird. When I attempt to capture birds in flight, blurred feathers is my outcome. This photo is wonderful. Thank you.

They can be very secretive. At least three pairs are nesting near our home and this year I cannot see into any of their nests.
