Little Blue Heron, Showing His Colors

It can be very hard to photograph an adult Little Blue. They are so dark all their real color is lost.

These two shots were in great light to capture the vivid magenta head and neck.

The tip of the bill is also a darker blue. During breeding season the beak is almost a translucent purple.
