Tucked among the flowers, I almost overlooked this Tricolored Heron (Egretta tricolor). Unlike when foraging, this bird stood stock-still during my photo session. Though I couldn’t see it, I believe this one was watching over a nearby nest. Since the clouds and late evening angle of the sun were conspiring against me, I’ll have to go back earlier in the day to try to capture the iridescent sheen of the feathers.
