Very nice portrait shot of that egret.

Thank you. We call it a little blue heron. For some reason. The Great blue heron isn't blue. This one is more blue than the Great Blue. Whoever named them was a bit off....

I knew better, but just wasn't thinking when I typed my response. :oops: I know this bird is a blue heron, but I mistakenly called it an egret. Thanks for correcting me on that bobo.

Sermon on the Peninsula

And the Great White Egret preached to the greedy Cormorants, saying "Thou shalt not consume all the fish in the pond..."
