I always love watching the young Great Blue Herons practice their in-flight navigation skills, and this handsome fellow at Merritt Island NWR was no exception.The Great Blue Heron gazed up at a little tree island, as if to gauge its height in preparation for a landing. All of a sudden, the GBH lifted up and spread his wings, heading straight for the trees . . . ‘photo-bombing’ a Reddish Egret on the way by !Not quite there yet, he missed the mark by a branch or two 😉Ahhh, now he scrambled up and found a roosting spot – at least for a few minutes, till he took off again.
