Waterfowl are plentiful on Sanibel Island off the Gulf coast of Florida. I caught this Little Blue Heron near the shore of one of the many walking trails on the island.
It was early morning but the sun was high enough to allow a fast shutter speed: 1/5000 at f8 and ISO 2000. The bird was close, most of its body was lit, and light reflected in the bug’s wings. All the planets must have been properly aligned to get this shot.
I thought about buying a lottery ticket.
Thought for the Day: Fortune knocks on every man’s door once in a life, but for a good many cases the man is in a saloon and does not hear her. Mark Twain
