[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Green Heron (Butorides virescens) is a small heron of North and Central America. It was long considered conspecific with its sister species the Striated Heron (Butorides striata), and together they were called "Green-backed Heron". Birds of the nominate subspecies (no matter which taxonomic arrangement is preferred) are extremely rare vagrants to western Europe; individuals from the Pacific coast of North America may similarly stray as far as Hawaii.

Hi Eleu.

A wonderful capture of an unusual bird, well to me that is. The colour and the size of head are what catches my attention first, i like the reflections and the minimal amount captured. Neat job, tfs

Hi Eleu!
Great shot, absolutely perfect by subject, light and very special mood. I love it!

Hi Eleu,

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Green Heron. «the good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
