Per last post, when the heron walked out from under the tree, I instantly had this version in mind but I was already set up for the bigger photo and didn’t want to press my luck by moving or switching lenses to zoom in closer. By the time I had finished with the longer exposures, the bird had retreated to the shadows surrounding the tree. As I packed up, he ventured back out. I quietly set back up and fired off this one. This photo was taken maybe 10 minutes after the previous posted and those warm colors had already faded a bit. From shooting so many twilight photos I’ve become amazed by how much the color and light changes each minute. Furthermore, you can return to the same spot every day and always get variance, even in similar conditions. That’s no complaint.
