Taken in the ACE Basin in an old rice field.
The area is a patch work of hundreds, if not thousands, of old rice fields and marshes. They are all linked by an equally huge number of dikes and ‘trunks’ controlling the flow of water.
These areas are the largest migratory stops in the eastern US. Tropical even make this a year round home.
Great Blue Herons, like these images, are just about everywhere.
