Green Heron, I have been hunting one of these for a long time. There small and skitish. He was sitting in a spot normally partolled by a humongous Alligator, but it was cold last night so gators are all buried in the mud.

Great shots, do they nest in the same spots every year?

Nice shot! You sure got close. I've been working on getting closer to the Black Crowned Heron's around here, but they usually take off before I get as close as you did. --John

I really like #3. It has a very natural look to it, as if you are in there with them.
