The next to last Heron is gorgeous! I love the stripes and the golden tones.


Thanks for the positive feedback. That is a mouse pup that the Small Blue Heron is about to devour. That bird was actual captive at the San Diego Zoo and I caught him at feeding time. The large Purple Heron is one of the most beautiful species of the Heron family. This one was hunting in the papyrus in the Okavango Delta in Botswana.
