Mid-morning Snack

Mid-morning Snack

A beautiful Green Heron hunts successfully in the waterways of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge.  This bird is seen around the refuge in the summer months and is always eagerly awaited by bird enthusiasts and photographers.  I was fortunate to come across this bird in the water just prior to the Kiwa Trail entrance.  I must have shot 500 frames in the hour it posed for me before flying away.  Shot from the passenger window of my truck, I used my Canon 40D, 1/250, f6.3, 400mm, ISO320, -1/3EV.
