Little blue staredown, Bunche Beach Preserve

A straight-on photograph of a little blue heron at Bunche Beach Preserve

Little blue herons have such a great "personality" and this one put on a show for me last spring at Bunche Beach Preserve. I saw it catch a surprising number of fish in this small tidal pool, all the while casting a series of expressive poses. Though, I can't quite decide if this straight-on looks is more comical or stoic.

  1. Cool shot of the Little Blue, they are beautiful. Happy Tuesday, enjoy the week ahead!

  2. Pretty bird and a "A Plus" post title along with it.

  3. Funny and lovely all rolled into one great share~

  4. Nice shots - straight down the barrel shots like this can often give the bird a very different 'look' to normal, I have a few in the pipeline!

    I like this one a lot.
