I went to The Willows pond to shoot some Dragonflies today but there weren’t any and it started to rain 10 minutes after getting there. I was down low to get the invisible dragons and when I stood up to go back to my car a bird flew out from just under where I was and landed 20 feet away. I couldn't tell what it was but thought it might be a small Green Heron - it turns out that it’s a juvenile Green Heron. Typically, I don’t see anything special at this place except for the two Kingfishers that live there - so, this was an unexpected treat!

I sometimes carry a small 3-legged stool which gets me low enough - I'm too old to lie down - would embarrass myself getting up! Thanks, Joe.

I haven't seen any type of heron that isn't.

I would still be on the ground like a turtle who couldn't right himself or herself.
