Tricolored Heron

Day 132 / 365

I paid the price of too many mosquito bites to get this shot.  But it was worth it.    🙂

Interesting Fact:

The tricolored heron (Egretta tricolor), formerly known in North America as the Louisiana heron, is a small heron. It is a resident breeder from the Gulf states of the USA and northern Mexico south through Central America and the Caribbean to central Brazil and Peru. There is some post-breeding dispersal to well north of the nesting range. Tricolored heron’s breeding habitat is sub-tropical swamps. It nests in colonies, often with other herons, usually on platforms of sticks in trees or shrubs. In each clutch, 3–7 eggs are typically laid. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tricolored_heron )

  1. Love this shot – the colours and sharpness. Beautiful capture. I hope you didn’t get sick from the bites?

    • Thank you for stopping by and enjoying my work. And thank you for your concern, I didn’t get sick. After all it was all worth it. 🙂
