After working for the Connecticut Audubon Society, it's hard not to get excited when you see a new bird. I've always loved the coloring and stature of the Green Heron, but had never seen one in person... until yesterday! Cassidy and I took quite a few trips to the park yesterday, hoping to capture this fellow while he was out and about.
Guess who won the hat contest?
(Yes, she wears it every day.)
The Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT is hands-down one of my favorite places. I can't believe I took photos of these sea critters eight years ago today! I remember it being a beautiful day - just look at that Stellar Sea Lion basking in the sun.
