Great Blue Heron at sunrise ~ Fort De Soto County Park, Florida

Just a single image today but an image that I like for its simplicity, morning light, composition, fine detail and watery background. Another one of the reasons I enjoy this photo is that the eye of the Great Blue Heron has a colored catchlight that is from the sun glowing yellow on the eastern horizon. Most catchlights are white but at sunrise and sunset colored catchlights are possible.

I used a pano crop for this image to accentuate the long bill of the heron and I think it worked quite well.

Her recent move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and photographing them. With so many birds species there easily accessible it wasn’t long before she was hooked. By learning more about each species, she can anticipate their behaviour and create opportunities to obtain ever better images of those species.
