    Wonderful yet unusual photo of this bird that I love. Here it resembles an odd piece of driftwood to me... from some kind of vine... with a cloak of feathers wrapped around a witch sitting astride it as if on a broom.

    I'm back again, to add that maybe such herons gave rise to the idea of witches on broomsticks... Where else did that idea come from?
