Camera shy Green Heron

Well, I haven't published any posts for a few days as I was in the lower Arkansas River valley. I found this Green Heron hiding behind some vegetation in a small wetland in a verdent valley that the Purgatory River runs through. It is at the bottom of the prairie canyons that ring this valley.

Green Herons are always reticent and will flush easily so care must be taken to approach them carefully. Like many birds, this Green Heron thought it was hidden because it was behind some vegetatiom.

More on the trip later.
