14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Focus on the task

This photo was taken at low tide, on the mud flats near Fort Myers,FL. Wading birds stalk the flats for fish. This little blue heron stared intently and the water for almost 10 minutes, its beak making ripples. The stillness and reflection caught my eye.
