Flight of the “Tweener”

Here’s a shot from Wed. morning.

The Little Blue Heron is all white as a juvenile. As it gets older it morphs into an in between stage on it’s way to becoming a mostly all blue adult. These I call “tweeners”. No longer all white, and not quite yet a solid color. They are a patchwork of blue and white at this phase.
