I was out at Lake Hodgson fishing and saw a dark shape near the shore. I was really lucky to have it jump up onto a rock. It was a Green Heron, this is the small heron that I normally see in the trees and it is very good at camouflage. The coloring may fool you but it is a Green Heron for certain.
I was able to move in fairly close with the trolling motor to get these photos.
See a lot of neat critters above.
