Little Blue Heron
On our first visit to Florida I had managed a few photos of one of the smaller species of heron, the Little Blue Heron. There were just one or two birds, but they showed quite well, sitting out on the bushes. On this trip, there were reports of one or two birds again, but they were very hard to find. When I did find them they were actually quite close, but well hidden on or near a nest in the reeds and vegetation by the side of the trail.
One bird in particular, was close enough for a full head shot using my 100-400mm lens.
