Wetland Heron Meeting

What a handsome fella.  I really like their chest plumage and this one nearly has himself a lions mane.  Unlike raptors where the females are by far the larger sex males tip the scales and stretch the tape in the world of herons. This big fella was a real diva for attention and wasn’t disturbed by me in the least. He just checked me out, gave me a smile and went back to hunting.
