With an occasional eye to the sky as Hawks and Vultures passed over head, this Little Blue Heron worked back and forth on a log, poking in the duck weed.
He seemed not to notice the Alligator floating just behind him, his head just to the left of the birds in the photo above. From where I stood peeking through underbrush, I wasn’t sure the log wasn’t alive, either.
The Little Blue gave a ruffle after a mis-step off the log and went back to patrolling.
