Appreciating Deeply, Photos of Fauna Blue Birds, Florida 15 May 2019 12 May 2019 Birds Bringing up the rear (after the white and the pink birds), the little blue heron. Ta da. And an even littler one on the way. Fit at 70: Update #4 Frying-Pan-Handle Face 8 Comments Judith Umbach 19 May 2019 at 2:31 pm 8 months ago Beautiful birds and beautiful photos. Isabel Gibson 19 May 2019 at 2:46 pm 8 months ago Judith – Thanks! Like lots of big birds, they hold still for long periods . . . barbara carlson 19 May 2019 at 3:04 pm 8 months ago How does it attend to its feathers on his neck and head? Isabel Gibson 19 May 2019 at 3:11 pm 8 months ago Barbara – Friends? Jim Robertson 19 May 2019 at 3:20 pm 8 months ago Very nice collection Isabel. I always liked finding these guys in the wild. (As I suspect you know, the juvenile little blue heron is pure white) Isabel Gibson 19 May 2019 at 4:29 pm 8 months ago Jim R – Yes, I guess I know it, although I forget that oddball colouring from one time to the next, so it’s not very well seated in there. On our travels, I see more tricolor herons than little blues, I think. But they’re all good. Laurna Tallman 19 May 2019 at 6:15 pm 8 months ago Learning that these beauties start out life with white feathers lends the thought “maturity” to elegance. They sport such painterly details, as though dressed for company, delightful birds. Isabel Gibson 19 May 2019 at 7:29 pm 8 months ago Laurna – Ah. Sort of like my Pinky-Winky Hydrangea which blooms white and matures into a deep rose. If only someone had come up with a more elegant name for it. Comments are closed.
