Description: This Great Egret was photographed at the Venice Rookery in FL one warm evening in December (I love FL in the winter )
The light was getting really low and the very last of it was juuussst tickling this guy. The brush behind him was more than a little dense, and no light was able to sneak through so it went black.
As I made the photograph, all I could think was that I couldn’t have placed him better if I tried! About a minute later, the sun was gone for the day but I had my shot.
