Two Juvenile Green Herons in Flight
Photographer: Loree Johnson
Location: Yreka, CA
Sometime in June of 2014, a clutch of green herons hatched in my neighborhood. They decided to use my backyard as a safe haven while learning to fly, hunt, preen, and get ready for lives as adults. It took days of trying to get a shot of one of them flying, but I happened to get two at once!
