The Green Heron (Butorides virescens) is a small heron of North and Central America. It was long considered conspecific with its sister species the Striated Heron (Butorides striata), and together they were called "Green-backed Heron". Birds of the nominate subspecies (no matter which taxonomic arrangement is preferred) are extremely rare vagrants to western Europe; individuals from the Pacific coast of North America may similarly stray as far as Hawaii.

great the view as the presentation of the snapshot with the reflection on the calmly surface of the water to be the eye catcher of the image.
I like the excellent contrast of the colours as the light management of the scene.

Wow, that is a great shot. Perfect framing and composition with the bird in the left upper third of the frame and the stones builing a diagonal line. Sure enough the perfect reflection and the clear and crisp colors help as well.
