This Tricolored Heron stood on a railing of a boardwalk in a Florida preserve. Anytime I see a portrait of a larger bird such as this I am reminded of how likely it is they are descendants of dinosaurs.

A stunning portrait of this heron! The white feathers make it special.

An excellent " portrait " image, Warren; great detail, plus the white rear feathers stand out so well in your photograph.
