21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Fading Away

A Great Blue Heron fades away in the green light on the coast of Florida. The green light is actually the reflection of the traffic light in the water. With decreasing natural habitat the Great Blue Herons often interfere with humans, especially fisherman to get an easy meal. Purposefully I focused on the green background of the bird and used Intentional Camera Movement to give this image a fading perspective. This was shot in Dunedin, Florida.
