18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Blue Herron

Every day I go to the beach and wait patiently for the atmospheric conditions to reveal the magic in the natural environment. On this occasion unbeknownst to me I happen to se this little fellow only yards away from me looking at the horizon with me. I adjust my settings accordingly and pushed my shutter button like a mad man.
