Karate by mydigitalmind Karate by mydigitalmind
A drive through Nummy Island proved to be productive as far as long-legged waders went - it was full of Great and Snowy Egrets and Great Blue Heron. We also had very pleasant surprises with a couple of Tricolored Heron and one Little Blue Heron. This Snowy Egret became very territorial when another would go near him. He was also a very animated fisherman!

Submitting this to the %ArtisticAnimals's Active Animals contest!

I would make an off hand joke about crane style, but these aren't cranes. :P
