Green Heron

Do you have a significant other who enjoys that you love photographing birds, AND is quite obliging if it’s safe when you blurt out, “stop the car!” ??

I do and here is one of those instances.  🙂

I saw a perched bird….wasn’t sure what it was….but it didn’t matter….and the words flew out of my mouth.

The easy pull-over and my sprint back to the brush opening to the marsh provided this gorgeous photo-op of a Green Heron.

A cool fact about this small heron, the Green Heron is one of the world’s few tool-using bird species. It creates fishing lures with insects, twigs, feathers, and other objects, dropping them on the surface of the water to entice small fish within striking distance.

Smart bird!  🙂
And thank you honey for pulling over, this one was worth it!  😉
