Tricolored Heron

Tricolored Heron Looking Around

Making a noisy production of it, this Tricolored Heron flew past me  up the canal.  I saw where he landed but the pathway along this part of the old rice field is lined with a lot of trees so I didn’t expect to see him close up. I got a peeking view of him through some branches, expecting him to fly off any moment as they tend to be skittish.

He stayed put even when I passed by to another vantage point that included his gorgeous reflection and more of the fallen tree that he perched on.

He continued to stay put as I moved on and rounded the corner for yet another view that included some fall color.
