Two quick greens

It’s 14 minutes to tomorrow, and I haven’t posted anything for a few days, so a couple of quick ones to sneak in under the wire. Oldest first.

On the same say that we were stalking the juvenile yellow-crowned night heron, I spotted a green heron (the ostensible target of the evening, before I found the other,) and snagged only a quick peek through the branches. But I got the eye at least.

And the other night, while I was talking to a friend on the phone, I found this green treefrog (Hyla cinerea) and did a quick portrait in a dynamic pose, with the streetlight creating a faint halo. This was intentional, and to that end I shot wide open at f4, but the focus was a wee bit off. I am ashamed, but it’s barely noticeable at blog resolution, so if I stick to only showing things off here, I’m good.
