We walked the pond trail at the St. Olaf College nature area this evening and saw this Green Heron in a tree.
Green Herons are much smaller than the more commonly seen Great Blue Heron; they are similar in size to a crow.
These shots were taken from quite a distance away -- maybe 70 yards or so -- through the spotting scope and represent my most successful digiscoping efforts so far with my new camera. It helps to be working with a bird the size of a crow (or green heron) rather than a tiny songbird.
This post is my submission for this week's Bird Photography Weekly.
