[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday I decided that I would drive up to Inks Lake again and visit my friend the Green Heron.
The lake is about an hour drive away from my home in Texas Hill Country. As almost every lake in Texas, Inks Lake is man-made. It is part of the Colorado River.
Well, if I had expected a warm welcome from my friend the Green Heron I was sadly mistaken. The stash of small fish on the ground appeared to be long gone, and he was busy trying to put food on the table.

You could hardly recognize the fellow on the pictures from last weekend. This time it was raining and the wind was blowing, and there he was all wet and agitated and busy trying to catch a fish.

He appeared to have no time to pose for pictures. Maybe next time he will be in a better mood. I noticed there are at least two of these herons at the lake.
I used a tripod and an extender (1.4x) for this picture. For pictures of uncooperative birds I really need a longer lens..

Position intéressante.

Great moment.
But the quality of the picture is not very good.
Extender + 800 Iso + (I suppose a big crop)
