It was a dark afternoon, even had been sprinkling a bit. I processed these each a little differently, trying to compensate for the lack of light.

He flew up from the water’s edge just in front of me and I didn’t get focus until the Great Blue Heron landed on the alligator ramp in the middle of the canal.

After he landed he took his time settling in with a little ruffle and arranging his feet.

All fluffed up, he faced the warm afternoon sun, this prime spot all to himself at least for a little while.
