Little Green Heron

While at the Safety Harbor Marina with my friends from my photography group, the Florida State Photography Meetup Group, we spotted this Little Green Heron on the branches under the mangroves.

Little Green Herons are very shy and rarely come out when people are around. They usually hide out on the edges of the water in heavy cover when they're fishing for their prey. Tonight was no different except this one was spotted by someone in our group. We all used our longest lenses so we wouldn't disturb him trying to capture him capturing his dinner. It didn't work out that way, though. He spotted us and moved on. I was lucky to capture this image.
