Default Learned something new today

Juvenile Blue Herons are White with Black Edges, Green Legs and Feet and Two-tone Gray Beak. You could have fooled me I assumed it to be a Snowy Egret when I shot it. Then I got the shots into the computer and saw green legs ???? had to look this up.

I like the third shot, sharp anf the contrast against the darker water is really good.

I think they are correctly called Little Blue Heron, this one being a juvenile.

All three shots are great but number 2 is my favorite.
