As in my last post, this Little Blue Heron was feeding in the foggy morning light at Ft. DeSoto. On point and waiting for a bit of movement, I captured him staring down his intended breakfast. These Little Blue Herons often appear very dull and drab, but they actually have a lot of nice coloring as you can see in this photo.
It was getting much brighter out, but the fog still kept a nice high key effect. The warm coloring of the sun is really having an effect of a yellowish tint to the background and I left it there on purpose. Maybe that’s because back here at home it’s snowing again and any reminder of warmer winter days in Florida is a real plus.
