Green Heron

SDP  10-19-11

Spotted this cute little green heron near a retention pond between U.S. 41 and Sarasota Bay in downtown. I love his markings, although I'm not sure how it got its name. I see brown, black, yellow and white. No green. One of the Mother Nature's mysteries.

In other news..SDP officially has some competition! I was contacted by Sarasota Daily Photo Splash, which is now part of the City Daily Photo community. Welcome SDPS!
This should be interesting! I wonder how many other cities have multiple blogs affiliated with CDP?

Why are they called green? Maybe it's a reflection thing, I don't know. But they do look awful green at times...

He is a beauty! What a nice pose too.

Maybe he's just a young tike and hasn't grown into his adult plumage.

Competition? Time for SDP management to huddle and develop the war plan. Or, coexist, like the 4,672 Paris blogs coexist.

He's a cutie!!

I'm with Jack - if Paris can support 4,672 blogs then you can support two. ;-)
