Startled Green Heron

Jordan Lake. “Oh oh oh,” said the juvenile green heron. “Mom and Dad said to be very careful around creatures that have one big eye right where a beak should be. Oh oh oh what do I do? Let’s see. Mom and Dad said mostly these one-eyed creatures were just being curious and didn’t want to eat me. I think I will just slip right on past and go back to looking for fish.”
Which is exactly what the youngster did and I spent a delightful 10 minutes photographing him in the early morning light trying to find a fish.
