Was It Something I Said?
This tricolored heron took one look at me today and immediately jumped up out of the salt marsh and took off in a hurry. Rather rude I thought.
Conversely, my good buddy Mr. A seemed absolutely delighted to see me this afternoon! Or maybe he was just happy the sun was out.
Well either way he was much better mannered than the nervously skittish tri.
Great photos. Love Mr A enjoying the sun.
That boy knows how to relax!

YOU WERE TOO BIG A FISH!!!!! 🙂
Thanks a bunch!
Mr. A does look rather happy. I like the drops coming off the heron’s feet in the second image.
He was happy to be getting warm sun on his hide after a rainy period. 🙂
Cute title, Mr. A must think so too. 😀
I saw what could have been that exact Tri again yesterday and he took off on me again. No manners these birds. 🙂
Mr A looks like he’s laughing.
As long as he is in a good mood then everybody is happy!
If the heron lived in MrA’s pool I can understand it was a bit jittery:)
Our friend Mr. A is too busy posing right now to bother the little herons. He is very impressed with himself. 🙂
He DOES look thrilled to see you. Hopefully it wasn’t with plans for dinner in his head.
I’m too old and chewy for him, he prefers something a bit more tender for his little teefs. 😀
I think Mr. A was actually laughing at you, but the tri just doesn’t have a sense of humour. 😛 Great captures, Phil.
If wonder if that wise guy Mr. A got a glimpse of my new haircut? Oh no, maybe they both did?! 😮 😀
I need to give that big reptile a good talking to. Not sure he would listen though.
I really like that gator shot. Lots of attitude. I think you made me like gators.
He does have that certain look about him that almost makes him kind of endearing. Well, kind of.
The gator looks like he’s planning his next attack … that sly grin.
They seem to always be planning something. Except when it’s nap time, you need to keep your priorities in place.
I sure understand the importance of nap time1
If I had to choose, I would rather an alligator than a heron was pleased to see me!
Now that I think of it, you are 100% correct about that. Thanks!
