We were on the boardwalk that goes around Audubon Swamp and this Green Heron was scouting in a fallen tree just below us.
He checked out all the branches.
He was so close to the edge it was hard to get a clear view.
I expected him to fly off…
…instead he went out into the open for a full body shot before resuming his hunting.
