Green Heron Up Close and Personal

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.

I've only seen one of these once, in Disneyland and I didn't have a camera and phone pics were bad!! I got this new camera though and I can't wait to try it out!!

Ok, Lillian, I'm convinced. Just went to B&H and ordered one.

I'm not the photographer that you are but I'm hoping to get decent photo's in spite of myself (smile).

Your photo's are great!
