Pic Of The Week: El Blanco Grande



This was the most brightly-colored and cooperative Great White Heron I found while in Florida last month. This one has some slick blue lores and sexy pink legs. As we all know, this is the white "color morph" of Great Blue Heron...but just looking at it raises all kinds of questions about variation within species, reproductive isolation, how these variants arise...the mind reels. Better just to look at the bird, at least for now. Bahia Honda State Park, FL.
