[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at the Venice Rookery in Florida with oblique morning light at my back. The background is calm water, and due to the low angle of the sun, provided a dark, rich canvas for the bird. Minor Post Processing - removal of a twig that projected partially into the scene, minor USM.

Hallo Eric and welcome to Trek Nature,
What a great portrait of this beautiful bird you have here as your intro shot. It really looks as if it is posing for you and your camera. I like the composition and close to the eye point of view as all the details are seen so beautifully. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
