A Great Blue Heron

This heron was photographed in a large inlet of very shallow water. The sun could not have been brighter and the glare more harsh.

While processing the above, and a shot of a Reddish Egret, I found pushing color settings higher than normal actually made for a nice grainy image.

No matter how many different times I photograph these birds I get excited when I find and shoot them. They never take a bad picture.
