Tony,

What a surprise. This is a lovely shot with such a soft background for a great captured moment.

What’s remarkable to me is that each part of the open mouth could be mistaken for the complete close beak of the blue heron! This gives the brain a jolt!

Well, Tony,

The open mouth did shock me at first. I had never before seen such a two headed creature!

But perhaps my brain is far too wild and trickable!
