Shutterbug Photo of the Day: “Beauty in Limited Color” by Barbara King

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day by Barbara King is a vivid close-up portrait of a blue heron.

“Flaming Gardens, Florida, Blue Heron,” writes King.

See a larger version of the photo in the Shutterbug Photo of the Day gallery here.

We will select one Shutterbug Photo of the Day image every month to run as a full-page feature in the magazine.

This bird is NOT a Blue Heron, (correct name Great Blue Heron). It is actually a Yellow-crowned Night Heron. I wish people doing bird photography would at least own a field guide and get their IDs correct.
