My World Tuesday Season # 2 Episode # 46

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren,  Sylvia and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. Click to visit other sites.

I was really lucky to have another close-up opportunity with a Green Heron. I got with-in 5 foot of this bird with a slow and quiet trolling motor approach. Lake Hodgson has given me fish a photo opportunities.
It was pretty brave and posed for me.
After I had chased this bird I was surprised as I was going to the dock to see three more on the bank and wood not far away. Click on the photo to get a better look. Can you see all three?

He really is a neat looking bird. Don't think I've ever seen one myself. You were lucky to get so close. Something must have told him you needed his picture.
