Little Blue Herons


On a cool windy evening I sighted my first Little Blue Herons. The Herons were gathered along the waters edge in the warm sunlight; sheltered from the cool breeze by the high marsh grass.
Note: I edited this post as I had previously incorrectly identified these birds as Blue Herons when in fact they are Little Blue Herons.

Salty: What a great shot. These have such a dark blue. Is that your cameras eye or they really darker then the ones I see?
