Here is a selection of juvenile Little Blue Heron portraits with nature provided backgrounds. You can just start to see some color in the tips of the tail feathers.
The pin head feathers aren’t as prominent as the chicks get older, although in the right light and humidity conditions they still stand up.
I liked the way the pine branched framed the back of this one and was wishing I was a foot or so taller to line it up better.
