Green Heron Fishing

written by

Camera: Canon 7DLens: 500mm F4

An evening spent with 3 very active, and yet very photogenic, green herons. After about 2 hours they became used to my presence and continued to fish for minnows, their stealth activities sneaking up on such skittish fish is always amazing to watch. After numerous battles between the males over fishing turf  I eventually ended my night with only a single male remaining to photograph at about 30 feet from my camera lens.
