These two Green Herons were showing off. At first I was sneaking around slowly and quietly snapping photos like crazy. Then I realized they really didn’t mind me being there so much. That gave me a little more confidence and flexibility. You can’t help but notice the algae laden pond. The herons would watch for movement under the layer of algae and strike lightning quick and come up with a minnow or tadpole. How they managed their success I’ll never know. After leaving the pond and making my way across an open field I came upon the Indigo Bunting. He kept his distance but he did give me a few photos. Then I was stopped by a butterfly setting on a thistle plant showing his colors. It was a fine day.
