Spring Break 2023: Ardea herodias

Ardea herodias, the Great blue heron;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (14 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

I always wonder how internally jacked and wound up Great blue herons must be to share the same habitat with American alligators. While this Great blue heron was watching the water for a quick snack, there were (at least) three adult gators lounging about within twenty yards. Life on the edge, always.
