I saw this green heron standing on our dock so I ran outside with my camera. He let me get pretty close. At least halfway across the backyard.
He jumped over to my neighbor’s seawall and started picking the bugs off the seawall. I don’t know what kind of bugs those were. They look like centipedes.
Beautiful! Green herons are such great looking birds – I always love seeing them! Great shots.

Great shots. 🙂
Well that was a very welcome visitor and you got great shot of him.
That’s the kind of bird you wont see in New York. Great photography!
I really love herons, as they catch food they remind me of Mr. Miyagi catching flies with his chop sticks.
The bugs are a type of Ligia. Not sure of the species…. baudiniana possibly. Their common names are Rock louse, Beach Cockroach, Marine isopod, Warf Roach, Sea Slater and others.
