BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

GREEN HERONS (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

31 Comments

The first green heron arrived at the reserve last June and was joined by several others during the course of the summer, so we had many opportunities to photograph these beautiful birds. They seem to be solitary birds and we never saw them paired up at the lake. We’ve yet to see a nest. I enjoy watching the movements of the green and all the other herons as they transform their appearance when they strut, stalk and fish.

  11. Great shots that really show off this Heron’s moves. I’ve only seen them singly here, too. I especially like the last photo, stretching for the water with a great reflection.

  12. They look small compared to Herons in New Zealand, beautiful photographs and tack sharp.

  13. Lovely photographs. This looks remarkably similar to the South African Green-backed Heron (Butorides striata)
