While hiking on the towpath between Lake Carnegie and the D&R Canal in Princeton, NJ  - which I often do - I noticed this loud bird flying in the branches of the small trees along Lake Carnegie's shoreline. Once I located this bird the challenge was to make an image of it.

That's not so easy as they don't stay still for very long anywhere. When it perched on this open branch for a second or two I knew it would make an interesting image.

I've posted this image on a Wildlife Photography Facebook page and it received over 625 Likes in 4 days from other photographers!

And it received a Best of the Week award from UCP on 12/9/2022.

They actually use tools, too.
 Green Herons 'bait' fish by dropping bread crusts or small insects onto the water's surface. When the fish comes up to grab the 'bait', the Green Heron grabs the fish. Smart birds!

You rarely see Green Herons as they are more nocturnal then diurnal and they never seem to stay still.

But if you do see one, you'll know it.

So it was a very cool to get this image while hiking along the towpath.

Always be prepared as one never knows what may happen in nature.

This is available at 30" x 20" for $405.00 Delivered (Locally)

OR at 15" x 10" for $150.00

OR at 21" x 14" for $245.00

OR at 45" x 30" for $976.00

At this size it would be incredible in the right location.

How can I help you?!
