Lyle the Friendly Dragon

Little Blue Heron hunting for prey with wings out
Maybe it’s just my overactive imagination, but in this position, and with his Crest fluffed up as in this photo, our friendly Little Blue Heron looks a bit like a storybook dragon.

Hopping a bit with his wings to aid him, Lyle may be repeating habits he learned from Snowy Egets with whom he hung out when he was a snowy white Juvenile.
