Juvenile Little Blue Heron Hunting

A juvenile Little Blue Heron poked along the edge of a pond in between some Cypress knees looking for a meal.

After a bit he flew up onto a bridge railing and showed off his mottled blue coloration. Sometime in their second year the Little Blues become fully blue.
