Great Blue Hybrid

The Natural World Has A Way Of Showing Diversity

Meet the Great Blue Heron/White Morph Reddish Egret Hybrid, I believe. He has all the crazy mannerisms of a Reddish Egret, the stature of a Great Blue Heron, and is a creature all on his own.
This specific time of year - March - is breeding season for the birds in Florida, and this Hybrid was no different - though there was no elegant plumage typically associated with breeding season, you can tell by the Lore - in that fantastic Cyber Blue/Purple color.

South Eastern USA or Anywhere Abroad

Whether up high on the mountain tops, on the oceanside, or under a forest's canopy, this planet's grandeur deserves to be shown and protected. I’ll do everything in my power to help you get the shot you need for the conservation mission you're undertaking.

"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
