Mother & Child

Mother & Child
by

Tarpon Springs, FL

This is Mama Heron that had a nest in the cypress tree in our back yard. Her baby is now as big as she is and is learning how to feed itself. Baby follows Mama around and squawks for food. Baby will sometimes grab Mama by the leg to get her attention. A real ankle biter.


other sizes: small medium large original

It's hard to believe that this heron chick will grow into those enormous wings! I love this capture George and am looking forward to seeing more of this family! Janet
