I found this green heron in a dense fog at Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge near Galveston Bay on the morning of 4/19/14. From about 50 feet away, I couldn’t even tell what it was. After processing the image, I discovered I had captured the reclusive green heron with my Nikon D4 and 200-400mm zoom at 400mm. According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, green erons are short and stocky compared to most other herons. They stay close to cover at the edge of wooded ponds, marshes, rivers and reservoirs as they hunt for fish and amphibians.
