Green Heron (Three Photographs)

These are from last year but I never posted them before. I am not getting as much time in the field as I would have liked. One of the reasons I was reluctant to post these was the unusual lighting. The overcast sky acts like a soft box smoothing out the light. The result is that the photos look a bit like a museum diorama and lack a sense of depth that gives life to nature photographs. This light is perfect for insects, but less helpful for birds in the open. That said the heron seems to have enjoyed its meal of a large bee.
