Green Herons are not your flamboyant sort. They prefer to skulk in cover then extend their long neck quickly to strike a fish. So when they decide to stand right out in the open in front of birders and photographers on wildlife drive in Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Sanibel, FL, I consider it my lucky day.
Photos taken with the Canon SX 50 HS point and shoot super-zoom. Last photo is not cropped, it's zoomed in at 200x.
The second photo is cropped, but untouched as to any kind of processing or sharpening, the rest of the photos have minimal done.
