Remember those green herons?


The babies (now full grown "adults") are still hanging around.

We spotted one of them today not far from where the nest had been.

You can't tell from this shot, but he's standing in shallow water looking for some dinner.

OH! It looks like he's spotted something! I wonder if . . .

HA! Look at that neck extend!

How do they DO that?

What? You wish you could catch your food under water?

Well, not exactly, Nan. The remind me of E.T. with their necks that seem to just stretch out. I know they're basically unfolding or uncoiling, but it looks funny.
