[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Green Heron was fishing in the 103 degrees [F] sun but had transgressed on the territory of a Common Moorhen which attacked the heron. The heron flew off and landed closer to me so all was for the better from my point of view. This photograph shows his surprise and annoynce at the attack. The Common Moorhen does not appear in the photo. I bought the 200-400mm almost 8 lb lens early this month. Too heavy but superb optics!
