Great blue heron flying, photographed at the Dancing Cranes Guest House in San Antonio, New Mexico, not far from Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. Best viewed in the largest size. The owners of the B&B have created a wildlife refuge on their property that attracts many kinds of birds. Really needs to be viewed in the largest size. I was shooting almost directly into the sun for this one and was surprised I was able to pick up so much detail. The sky was actually washed out and I added a light gradient to it to give it a more natural look.
Thanks so much for making my shot of the birds against the early morning sky your #1 for the day. It is always such a thrill when that happens! You guys are so generous with your compliments.
Hope your week gets off to a nice start!
