    the green herons are back... i was beginning to wonder, after not having seen one since May. i spotted several at the park this afternoon, but this little fellow was the only one who came close enough to let me snap his picture... all with 40D and 100-400 @ 400mm, various exposures.



    you can see the green on his wings quite nicely in this one...

    I heard some folks at the beach yesterday talking about spotting a green, but I never saw him. Great shots, Rocky.
