A few weeks ago I posted Death from Above and some people were expressing displeasure with the blue heron and called the perpetrator a nasty bird. Really it’s just the circle of life folks. But in all fairness to this beautiful bird, I thought I should show the less violent side of the blue heron, the Gecko is on its own.
I came across this scene in The Selby Gardens of Sarasota Florida during the orchid show. The blue heron was overheard saying,” I told you to shut up about that damn insurance.” I turned to my friend Jerry saying I didn’t know that herons ate geckos. I think of them as fisher birds. He replied with a shrug, “Well somebody has to eat them.”
The White Heron is a migratory bird but we rarely see them in Pennsylvania. However, we have see them all over the place in Florida. This one was captured in the Florida Botantical Garden in Largo Florida.
“Little Blue Heron”sounds like a song title or a rock band name. We were in the Florida Botantical Gardens stalking Osprey and Aligators and this little blue guy started to follow us. I think he works for the NSA or something.
We visited the Ding Darling nature preserve on Captiva island and saw flocks of different birds including hundreds of white pelicans. This was the only Tri-Color Heron we saw and he looked a little lonely.
