They are growing up fast

After a couple of miserable days it brightened a bit and I managed to get a few more shots of the juvenile Great Blue Herons.  Mom and Dad were away and they were left to fend for themselves in the nest.  The primaries are growing but there wasn’t any indication of flight play yet.  Instead they spent the time trying to get rid of the baby fuzz,

playing peek-a-boo with each other (ummm, maybe it was a flatulence joke there),

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
