Several Green Herons were sitting around a pond with the early morning sun highlighting their beautiful colors. The first one had the most elegant surroundings, dripping with Spanish Moss.
This one was concentrating for hunting, but never left the branch.
This perch didn’t look like much to me, rather high off the water for fishing but this Heron defended it from another who wanted to at least share the space.
