[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
First of all I hope to not tire you all out with my Little Blue Heron friend. I have to tell you there is something magical about these birds, and honestly I love being able to capture them! I had another Blue yesterday on Sanibel that was an outstanding subject. But today I am going to finish the week with my Six Mile Cypress shoot. I hope you like his sweet pose :)

Have a Wonderful Day!

Conservation Status:
Declining in much of its range in the United States. Because it does not bear long showy plumes in breeding adult plumage, the Little Blue Heron largely escaped serious population declines from feather hunting for the millinery trade. Habitat loss and human-caused changes in local water dynamics are the most serious threats.

Other Names:
Petit héron bleu, Aigrette bleue, Crabier bleu (French)
Garza azul, Garceta azul (Spanish)

Bonjour Angela,
une belle série de Hérons dans votre galerie, c'est peut être votre oiseau préféré ?. J'aime bien la couleur et la lumière, avec un coup formant une jolie boucle. Une vitesse plus aurait permis de figer le mouvement, et avoir un bout des pattes un petit plus.

Hi Angela,
this is a beautiful shot!
Great colours and you've captured the bird in its natural habitat which is a bonus.
Well done,

Simply super shot. I love the way it is standing

bonjour angela
il semble totalement vous ignorer,a moins que vous ne fussiez caché.
j'aime cette pose ou l'on voit cette sceance d'epouillage.
c'est vrai que la vitesse est trop juste mais vous avez surement pris en automatique!

Very nice ! Great POV and capture of posture while preening. Very nice detail and contrast, colors are great as well. Like the catch light in the eye. Lovely composition, too. TFS

Hi Ange,
A very nice exposure here. The colors and detail look very nice. You caught a nice pose in a nice surrounding environment. Not to worry. I would never tire of looking at shots like this. I just started a new show at the local art gallery. I have up six shots of birds from the recent FL. trip. All of the recent TN posts. Alot of nice compliments, people in the midwest are not familiar with some of these birds. (The spoonbills really throw them for a loop) Here is a link to a festival where I am going to set up a booth and try and make a few bucks :)
