BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

GREEN HERON

33 Comments

I watched as the green heron carefully scanned the water looking for a passing fish. It watched, it patrolled, and waited some more. All the herons I’ve photographed are the most patient of fishermen, more patient than this photographer. I took some photos and left the bird as I continued my walk.

  1. A wonderful photograph. I’ve seen many great blues, of course, and some whites (aka great egret), and a few black-crowned night herons, but never a green. I’ll be kayaking on the Jordan River in the morning and hope to see some herons.

  7. Great capture of this beauty, Belinda! And so right on the patience thing, of course what else do they have to do? 😁

  9. And there you have captured that famous lip lap, the Green Heron trademark. They have this habit of lapping their bill. The only bird I know to do this. Very nice.

  10. I have yet to see one in the wild, but I hope to. The patience of these wading birds almost rivals that of spiders.

  12. Your patience – like mine, MUCH shorter than that of any heron – was rewarded. This is a magnificent portrayal of the Green Heron!
