There were lots of birds — herons, storks, anhingas — and other creatures like squirrels and pigs in the swamp this afternoon, but this Green Heron was the only one that actually posed.

I don’t think we have green herons here in the UK. Good close-up and nice angle on the head. It’s great when they pose.
I didn’t know where their range so I searched and found this article of one that was blown off-course & found in Cornwall. http://news.bbc.co.uk/earth/hi/earth_news/newsid_9068000/9068983.stm This is the closest I’ve ever seen one of these. He was standing on the edge of a pond & I was on a small viewing stand just above him, looking for alligators (which were way too far away to photograph).
What a beauty!
