Green Heron (Butorides virescens)

 

I got a few shots of a Green Heron this evening.    I was driving around the frog pond area in my old Chevy Suburban.   It is interesting that the birds do not seem too threatened as long as I stay in the vehicle and take pictures through the window.  He caught several frogs as I watched him.    I will post three photos.  One dignified.   One with a frog in his mouth, and one that looks like he is getting on his punk rock look for a night on the town.
