The green heron.


I was very happy to see this heron. As this picture was taken in mid-may, the pond in the botanical garden was not obstructed by tall aquatic grasses. I was able to approach it easily and using my long lens was able to capture this shot. This heron is often found near streams and ponds where it loves to fish using its long bill.
