Juvenile Green Heron

I had a fun time stalking this juvenile Green Heron (Butorides virescens) in my kayak along the Looking Glass River.  It did not seem too frightened of my presence, which I chalk up to its immaturity.  I had to navigate though some dense aquatic brush to get good photos of it, but once I got to the right point I had ample opportunities to capture images.  Something in the distance piqued its interest and it ruffled up the feathered crest on the crown of its head for a few moments.
