When I took these photographs I knew the pieces were there, but I was not sure how they would be in the final images.
I’m shocked at how the marsh water could look that still, clean, and clear.
Above Roseate Spoonbills were resting besaides the tall swamp grasses. Great reflections but I didn’t plan on the birds catching the light back on their feathers. Very subtle, but nice.
A single Night Heron by a small island made an unexpected appearance. No wind at all made the above possible.
The last photograph is another set of Spoonbills, these off where marsh turns to swamp. The trees, reeds and clear Spoonbill reflection is as good an example of symmetry as you might find in the wild.
The photographs above were taken in the ACE Basin area of South Carolina.
