If you look real carefully along the shores of the Rideau River you might be lucky to find a Green Heron fishing and if you are luckier he may catch a fish. These small herons are native to this area, however they are hard to see, being significantly smaller then the Great Blue Heron and have a feather colouring and pattern that blends into the foliage along the river bank. This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D camera and a 400 mm lens. The shutter speed was set at 1/2000 second, the aperture set at f8 and the ISO was set to 800.
