[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot in the very early morning at the Savannah Game preserve. Lots of interesting birds can be found in this place. It used to be a plantation during the 19th century, however the marsh has long since reclaimed the land.

Hi Hubert,
This is a very nice heron shot with a classic pose in a nice, natural setting. The early morning sun was gives it a nice soft effect and the light is adequate on the back side. Great DOF and nice background.
