PIC OF THE WEEK: 05/12/16 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2016 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA • James River near Varina
Notes: There is something unusually calming to wildlife when approached from a boat. Perhaps it is the lack of a vertical stance and human profile, or maybe it’s the slow even movement? But I have experienced that phenomena several times over the years. This time it was from a canoe. We had paddled to the back corner of the lower lake at Pocahontas State Park, finding a few lily pads blooming and butterflies flitting around, but not much else. So we made the turn and slowly headed back to the landing. Just as we passed the last cove on the right, we noticed some movement near an Alder Bush at the edge of the water. This Green Heron was hiding underneath in its shade. So, we decided to park the nose of the canoe on the mud flat at the entrance to the cove, since it was choked with lily pads. I lowered myself to the floor and propped the lens on the edge of the canoe and we began to wait. After a little while the Heron lurked out onto a nearby log that extended out into the water. Eventually it made its way well out into the cove, right in front of us. The deep green in its back glowed in iridescent jade and the contrasting rusty stripes on its neck became vibrant as it lurched out into the sunlight. We spent well over an hour watching this one bird, eventually returned to its shady hide.
