Little Blue Heron


Little Blue Heron on a piling behind the Snook Nook, Jensen Beach. I was there yesterday to buy my husband a gift certificate for his birthday.


Gulls and pelicans on the pier, attracted perhaps by the pungent odor of bait.


Lizard near the parking lot.


From the Snook Nook you can see the bridge from Jensen Beach to Hutchinson Island.


A small, dark heron arrayed in moody blues and purples, the Little Blue Heron is a common but inconspicuous resident of marshes and estuaries in the Southeast. They stalk shallow waters for small fish and amphibians, adopting a quiet, methodical approach that can make these gorgeous herons surprisingly easy to overlook at first glance.

And, my, what big feet they have.
