  In my opinion, Little Blue Herons are the most beautiful of the heron family. They can be easily found on any of North Florida's prairies and seem to be sociable enough to get to get some good photographs. I once watched a heron use pieces of bread to catch minnows. The heron would take small pieces of the bread, walk it to the waters edge, and drop it in. As the minnows would gather about the bread, the heron would pick them off. Interesting how birds will use tools.

  1. Wow! The water is brilliant! Looks so real; I'm a painter and I had to stare at it for a minute to be sure it was paint!

  2. Hi Lyssa
