Yesterday we had a new visitor to the pond behind the back yard. Great blue herons are frequent visitors, but for the first time in the 6 years I've been watching the pond we had a pair of green herons. One of them flew near to where I had my 7D set up with the 100-400 lens, and this is one of the better shots. It's not as sharp as I would prefer, but in my excitement to get the shot, I had a little motion blur.

Green Herons are fun to watch, I hope they hang around awhile for you.
