See see Jacob, you got a bird ;-) Would be nice to know the name thought ;-) I love the dark and light area around its feather, it gives a special touch to the picture!

What exotic wild life you have there.

Long-legged little fellow. I like the way you captured the feathers. MB

A heron of some kind? Beautiful! I have never seen a ring on the upper part of the leg... It is a ring, right?

Jacob said...

@ JM - I don't know what that is...perhaps a marking peculiar to the bird, whatever he/she is!

It looks like a young heron. If I saw that here, I'd think it was a blue heron. I'm jealous! Our herons fly away the minute they see me. Are yours more tame, or did you use a super-long lens? Nice photo of a nice bird!
