A Juvenile Little Blue Heron

DSC_6526

This is a Little Blue Heron and not an egret!  I understand how a person could be confused.  The Little Blue Herons have a white color phase as juveniles.  Yes, the Little Blue Herons really will turn that purple blue color that most people are familiar with.

I spotted this Little Blue Heron on a small pier at a little park lake in The Villages, Florida near Spanish Springs Square on September 13, 2015.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see a very slightly larger version of that photo.  Enjoy!
