Awkward teenage herons

... assuming that about 9 months is a teenager in the heron world.

They're almost more tri-colored as a young birds than they are as adults.

I'm not sure what it went for here, I don't remember if it caught it or not.

The drops of water around the snapped shut bill are fun.

Nearby was a young Little Blue just as the sun hit the beach.  It was nabbing some sort of short fat minnow.

In the early morning light the gray base of the bill gets some pinkish tones.

Speaking of pinkish tones...

the next one is montaged from a few minutes later in the morning.
