While beachcombing in downeast Maine, this was looking down into a tidepool stream as the morning sun caused shadows off of the ripples.
I caught this Reddish Egret in Florida not so long ago – this was a moment where it was absolutely still. It was fishing in the shallows of a small pond. The late afternoon was cloudy, which cast a nice filter over the water – as not to wash out all of the color. In it’s shadow, the legs and mushy underwater flora are clearly visible. It is actually called a Reddish Egret – a medium sized heron. I did not know that herons and egrets could be interchangeable!
