Friday

Blending In

One of my photos from vacation ~ taken at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. They have a FANTASTIC boardwalk area that takes you to little marshes. This is closely cropped so a bit of distortion. I am not sure of the ID on this lovely ~ but one thing I know for sure ~ he blends in to his surroundings quite nicely :)
Edited:  possibly a Juvie Yellow-crowned Night Heron

He certainly does, Kerri, even his shape echoes that of the branch on which he stands.
Fabulous Friday to you too!

Nice piece of camouflage. I'll take a guess Kerri that this is a juvenile Yellow-crowned Night Heron.

My my - how s/he does blend in. Better to keep it safe from predators I would guess!
