The Green Heron Stretch

I’m always amazed at how far Green Herons can stretch out their bodies without falling into the water.  He reached out, grabbed some food and then pulled himself back up.  I don’t quite have the stomach muscles for that maneuver.  Found this guy fishing at Brazos Bend State Park, TX.  I sat along the bank for a couple of hours and shot mostly Green Herons.  Not much else around this time of year at the park.
