There are no words for this one...

...because I laugh every time I look at it.

Mr. Wide Jaws is funny enough, but it’s the contemptuous look on his sibling that really cracks me up. I always imagine “Nice, Junior…” running through her head, followed by "you're so immature."

A young Tricolored Heron sticking out his tongue with jaws open wide!

I have never seen immature Tri-colored herons before and this is hilarious! The bird with its tongue sticking out reminds me of one of my brothers! If we were all birds, that would be him!

Birds are just as expressive as the rest of us, aren't they?

Pam Johnson Brickell said...

Wow! What a catch! A great display of how their jaw hinges. No wonder they have no problems swallowing fish!
