NATURE NOTES AND WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY


I was very happy to keep company with this Green Heron while he was fishing.  These photos were taken in the Everglades a couple of months back.  


You can learn more about this beautiful bird here.












Today I am linking with Michelle's Nature Notes and Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday.  Thanks for hosting Michelle and Stewart.

  20. Great set of pictures - your heron seems a bit more active then mine.

    I don't expect that there will be many week when we post the same species of bird for WBW!!

  26. Awesome photos Denise,
    Such focused concentration exudes from the Green Heron.
    A wonderful experience you had being with such good company.
    With the event happening a few months ago I'm guessing you are in a part of America that doesn't do snow and ice, but would still have been chilly I'm sure, but also refreshing.
    Thanks for sharing a great journey.
    A very beautiful looking bird too. The feather colouring is lovely, and the plunge into the water is stunning.
