Lovely image but I think it is a juvenile Little Blue Heron. I photographed one last week. Rare for me and nothing like the quality of your portrait. Nicely done.

Please note the mature coloring of the beak.

This is a juvenile LBH.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

I believe that you are correct. The legs of your leucistic are also dark. Sorry to question your identification. Not my style. Won't happen again.

Very nice portrait shot of the Arctic Tern, Jack. Apparently these birds are attempting to change the color of this rock to white. ;-)a :p:lol:

Enjoy.

What a special treat this one had to be for you, Ted. They must be quite rare, and you really made an exceptionally nice shot.

I love this one, Tom. It's absolutely gorgeous! The colors and ripples in the water add greatly to the appeal of this shot.

This is a truly stunning shot, Matt...tremendous appeal.

No offense taken. We all must be able to defend our IDs from time to time. Thanks for your comments.

Thanks, Mike - but that's nothing. You should see the wardens' jackets! :-P

I think I agree with Ted here but it's very easy to mix these up especially since it is so rare. I've never seen one (leucistic)in person. Great shots all around Ted.
