This was one of the most memorable experiences I've had with a sunrise shoot and with wildlife. Also taken at Shem Creek while vacationing in Charleston. While we were taking photos, this heron kept following us to see what we were up to. At first it kept its distance, but as we kept going it got closer and closer until we were only a couple feet from it. It stayed with us almost the entire time we were there and lent itself to some great photos!
