A Tricolored Splash

The Tricolored Heron (Egretta tricolor) hunts energetically, often crouched even with the water with its neck coiled. Once its target is located the heron extends its neck with speed and agility to capture its prey. J. N. "Ding" Darling NWR on Sanibel Island, Florida. March 2015
