Green Heron Fishing

The green heron is a small heron found in the waterways of Ontario and Quebec.  He is a avid fisherman seen here on the banks of the Rideau River near Manotick, Ontario.  These photographs were taken with my Canon 7D Mark II camera and a 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set to 1/2000 second, the aperture was set to f8.0 and the ISO was set to 800.

Green Heron Fishing

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.
