[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From a distance, the Green Heron is a dark, stocky bird hunched on slender yellow legs at the water’s edge, often hidden behind a tangle of leaves. Seen up close, it is a striking bird with a velvet-green back, rich chestnut body, and a dark cap often raised into a short crest. These small herons crouch patiently to surprise fish with a snatch of their daggerlike bill. They sometimes lure in fish using small items such as twigs or insects as bait.

Hello Peter! This heron has posed so prettily for you, all you had to do was shoot! Great capture of the bird's feather colours in such detail. His feet match the foliage behind him wonderfully. Interesting to see the plants growing out of the old log. Super shot, excellent POV. Well done! Linda
