A scene from 100 million years ago? No other bird so strikes me as being a decendant of dinosaurs than this one. It's easy to imagine that this is a prehistoric landscape instead of Brooklyn.

He was not "striking" at fish, just reaching out...

While the Little Blue Heron is certainly the strangest looking of this varied family, the Tri-Colored has proportionally the longest neck. This is the first one I've even seen, and my first reaction was that it was a mutation Little Blue. Didn't hurt that he was hanging out with a Little Blue when I first saw him.

Nice series dave. Really like the third shot. For me, the pose is quite eye
catching. Also, reminds me of those toy bobbing birds.

Nice shots dave.

How about this chap for a dinosaur? (Not a great photo - he persistently stayed close to the very thick mesh of his cage.)

He's big enough to eat small people too! And was very ornery. A cassowari I believe.

Oh he'll do, he will do....

Twenty years ago when I read the first reports of birds being decended from Dinosaurs, I was sceptical, but as time goes on my perceptions have changed so much that I wonder why I needed them to tell us...

:shock:

Thanks!

I like image one best, because, if I was looking at a book of dinosaurs, and this was shown as rendered image of a Triassic scene, I wouldn't question it. Take another look, and see if you can tell what I mean. Even the vegetation looks old...
