Green Heron: Expert Fisherman

Green Heron
This morning when I was at the "click" ponds of Viera Wetlands I saw a Green Heron fishing.  I love watching any heron capture its prey, but Green Herons to me are especially fun because they like to orient themselves upside down with their feet out of the water and then lunge their bills downward to catch the fish.  I watched this particular heron for a few minutes and was able to capture him grabbing a little fish out of the water.
