Bet You Cant Guess  My Favorite Bird!  :)

Bet You Can't Guess My Favorite Bird! :)

Shot this at Delta Ponds when a shaft of sunlight created a warm glow on the water behind a Great Blue Heron.
The only way to get a photo of the heron was make it a silhouette.
That turned out good, I think. I love the result.

1/1250s f/6.3 at 110.0mm iso100 full exif

Would that be the coo coo bird, no I did not think so, it must be a great blue heron, wonderful silhouette & shadows, Vern.
