I popped over to explore Lake Seminole Park this afternoon after the rain stopped. I figured it was high time to venture out beyond my favorite stomping grounds. As luck would have it, I came across this adult Little Blue Heron (Egretta caerulea).
Thanks, Nature, for providing me with such a nice contrast to the patchy-colored juvenile that I shared with you just yesterday. The base of the bill is a lovely pale blue and the body is an elegant slate gray but that deep purple neck is the showstopper here. There’s a lot to admire in this small package!
