A couple of days ago I posted some pictures of a green heron fishing for tadpoles (See:Attempts at bird photography part II: Fishing for Tadpoles).

While I very much like those pictures and the way they show the bird in the act of catching a tadpole I feel they don’t altogether do the bird’s plumage justice. In the post I described it as: “somewhat brightly colored in a dull sort of way”. I take that statement back. In the right light it has lovely, colorful plumage.

Taken with a Sony A500 and Minolta Maxxum 100-200mm f4.5.
