Great Blue Heron-Ballerina

Friends, still doing some flying shots, this blue heron looks like a ballerina with his pointed toes in a landing position. Two Herons were fighting over this fishing hole and this one was doing a lot of jumping and flying away from the other, bigger bird.  I like her tutu, do you? :), til Tomorrow MJ
