Striated Heron

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Stewart McLeish

This Striated Heron, a juvenile one, was preening himself. I watched him for some time as he carefully cleaned evry inch of his body. It was a bit like watching a contortionist and the circus!

Location: Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
