A small, stocky wading bird, the Green Heron is common in wet spots across much of North America. It can be difficult to see as it stands motionless waiting for small fish to approach within striking range, but it frequently announces its presence by its loud squawking. This beauty put on a hunting show for me. He caught tadpoles galore. I took this In Rockaway, NJ with the Nikon D3100 and the Nikon 70-300mm zoom lens.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)

    A truly beautiful capture, the whole scene! I’ve startled more than one Green Heron away not seeing them! But this one is great! It’s always a wonder to come across them.

  • I actually did startle this one at first, but it didn’t fly far. I was able to approach it rather easily. It was a very cool experience. Thanks for stopping by. =)
