    Default Green Heron (Florida)

    Nailed this guy on a tiny island in the surrounding duck weed. Though there was heavy cloud above (hence the cool tones on the plants), the sun was pushing
    through a thin patch of clouds behind me; that lent some needed color and contrast while keeping the bird's shadow to a minimum. Really happy with this result!

    Processed in LR CC. Cloned a few small irregularities on the plant matter and in the background (generated by same plant matter)

    Hi Dorian. lovely image of a Green Heron. I echo all the positive comments. A question... When you were getting this low POV did the thought of alligators cross you mind? Thank you for sharing.
