This is a re-post of “A Great Blue Heron Warming His Feet” to get it into my gallery. Taken this summer during nesting season down in the wetlands of the ranch….
It takes a variety of things aligning just so to pull off a capture like this.
1: there has to be a good sunset
2: I had to be there with the right equipment to capture this crazy light.
3: I had to be on topography that allowed me to move up while the sun went down.
4: The birds have their own minds in this and only “Sneaky Pete” the windmill has any say in their cooperation…🤣
Location: Bliss Dinosaur Ranch, Wyoming/Montana borderlands.
