I got up close and personal with a Green Heron at Wood Lake this Summer. He was so busy looking for dinner that he didn't pay any attention to me. But just to be sure I get the shot I always take one right away at a distance and then slowly sneak up and take more. As we all know sometimes the birds fly away as soon as you take the first step. But sometimes you get lucky.
I'm also happy to hook up with Wild Bird Wednesday after a brief absence. I was out bird watching!
