Back-Lit Great Blue Heron
There were tons of GBH’s in Freeport on this day back in June. They were feeding on the fish that the Skimmers were also trying to catch. Was able to capture this one with back-lighting in his wings as he was coming in for a landing. I’m a major fan of back-lit shots and always try to find them when I’m out at sunrise. I like to break the rule of shooting with the sun at your back.
