HI Guys, :)

Sorry I have been so busy I have missed my TN family! I'll try and do better. Hope that you are all doing wonderfully.

Here is a Juvenile Little Blue Heron, he was out catching his meal, you can see it mid-air! I captured him on Duck Key while we were at our FAA Conference.

A smallish heron of the southeastern United States, the Little Blue Heron breeds in various freshwater and estuarine habitats. It is the only heron species in which first-year birds and adults show dramatically different coloration: first-year birds are pure white, while adults are blue.

You had a great timing in this shot, with the caught of the meal in its way to the bird's beak.

Angela, Not seen for long. But this is quite interesting shot as the fly is in the air and the heron is mouth open. Nice details and lovely take. Ganesh

Hi Ange,
Welcome back! I was wondering what happened to you. Great timimg to get this young heron flipping his meal around to swallow it. Exposure looks good with the nice colors and sharp detail.
