Not a Paper Cut

The intricate layering of this Little Blue Heron’s (Egretta caerulea) plumage caught my eye last weekend. It reminded me of the work of an incredibly talented papercutting artist featured in Audubon’s magazine a couple years ago. Do yourself a favor and check out her gorgeous rendition of an American Kestrel.

Thankfully, this is one of the calmer, more deliberate members of the heron family, which allowed me a decent amount of time to take photos.
