I live on a canal in Port Charlotte, Florida and just love all the tropical birds. I enjoy photographing them, especially in flight. This is a Great Heron who comes occasionally. He's majestic.

Is there a more beautiful sphinx-like bird? He likes to eat fish, snakes, frogs, mice, lizards, and insects. When eating ice cream, wouldn't we all love to have a throat as long as the heron's.
