Share Your Best Photo of the Day

Recommended Posts

I just gotta share these up-close photos from my Great Blue Heron close encounter a couple days ago.

These images were captured with a Canon T6i with a kit lens.

Apparently these birds have at least one grooved/ribbed toenail for some reason?!

You can see the herons cockatoo thingy on his head sticking out and in the last 2 photos, and I can just barely see his beak in the last picture.

I have never seen such a lovely blob of feathers.

If you didn't know those were a bird's feet, you could easily think they were some type of reptile. The reptile/bird connection is quite interesting.
