Little Blue

The Little Blue Heron… super neat transformation this heron goes through. When they are juveniles their feathers are completely white with dusty bluish tips and going into their immature to an adult stage they begin molting; feathers start changing.

Like any wading bird, most spend a considerable amount of time preening.. and those are the best photo ops!
