Green Heron in a Swamp
I’m still overflowing with bird photos from my past winter in Florida, so I hope you’re cool with them still popping up for a while. And…..so, here we go again! 😉
This past February during one of my outings at Fakahatchee Strand’s Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk, I spotted this Green Heron hanging in the partial shade down by the swampy water.
Suddenly out of nowhere, a Great Blue Heron flushed out, alarming both of us! It caused the Green Heron to fly/jump to another shaded water perch that was luckily still in my line of view.

I really love the photo above and thought it also looked great with a tighter crop. So you get both.
The Green Heron actually stayed put and calmed back down as previous. I was tickled with this encounter, said a quick ‘thank you’, and left it be. 🙂 I’m sure s/he was happy with that too!
