The Heron had collected moss but now the sun had dropped and the bird was flying almost into the sunlight. (Photographs best viewed large)

Since I was close when the bird first landed to gather moss I was able to pan with him as he took flight.

At the time I didn’t realize how good the light was. I thought there was a chance the last shots would be blown out with the bird directly in the setting sun.

This was the last trip for materials. The female suddenly left the male in charge and went to hunt.

    1. Sun down worked in my favor for these. This rookery is filling up with nesting Herons. While some nesting trees are not all that close, others are. Soon the air will be filled with flying Heron. Not long after that the Great Egrets should arrive and then the air is like a major airport 👍👍
