Green Heron plus voting results…………..

The votes are coming in and it looks like my old original Texas Tweeties is going to win by a landslide.  It just shows that change isn’t always better.  As we say here in Texas, it is better to dance with the lady that you brought. 🙂

Here are a couple of images of a Green Heron that I took this morning at Middle Concho Park.  It was beneath me resting on a log sticking out from the river bank.  I was in the shade of a tree looking down at his dark color, and there was a glare from the water.  I exposed at plus 2/3 EV to give more light to the bird, but then had to darken the water in during processing.  The EXIF data was the same for both except my camera gave me an f6.3 for the first and f5.6 for the second.

  1. Hey Bob,

    I took some Green Heron pictures last week, too. As you know, I just have a point and click Sony camera, so my pics leave a little to be desired, but my Green Heron pics turned out not so bad. 2 months and 1 week before I get to Texas. Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival – here I come.

  2. Hi Bob! I’ve come across quite a few Green Herons earlier this summer. Their yellow eyes are amazing. Hope you’re well! Melissa
