LIKE AN ELEPHANT’S TRUNK, the astonishing neck of the Great Blue Heron is among the most mind-boggling feats of adaptive evolution I’ve ever witnessed. One moment it’s almost completely concealed, as Beau sits with his head just above his wings—then it shoots down to nab an unsuspecting fish... and when he wants a really good look at his hunting grounds, up it shoots! SWIPE LEFT to see just how far he can extend, dear Followers! And, if you’re not yet a Follower, perhaps you’d like to check out my gallery at @apjpix and, if you like what you see, consider tapping FOLLOW. Thanks so much!
