CAMERA CRITTERS, SATURDAYS CRITTERS, BIRD D'POT AND WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY

 Not the closest or the sharpest of this beautiful bird.  I have shared a lot from our road trip to Florida last January, and one other from Corkscrew Swamp.  These were taken at Corkscrew on a very dark, dreary day and therefore my photos aren't the clearest, or even the sharpest, because I was so far away.  Still, with all that being said, I was overjoyed to see a bird I had never set eyes on before and these photos bring back that lovely memory for me.



The Little Blue Heron.


 I found a wonderful blog here and if you scroll down you will find more information.  There are also amazing photographs on a variety of herons.






I am linking with Camera Critters, Saturday's Critters, Bird D'Pot and Wild Bird WednesdayThank you to everyone who hosts these wonderful memes.

This is wonderful! He is so intense blue. I have never seen a little one. I have seen the great blue many times, but he is barely blue.

I love little blues! We first saw them in Louisiana -- in a tree, it was nesting season. They looked like flowers blooming. Now I do see them in Florida too. But not here on the West Coast.
