18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Heron Sunset

I was in Andros Island, Bahamas on an expedition. We went out to do some fishing near dusk and I saw a heron hunting in the tidal marsh flats. There was a rainstorm off to the =west with the sun setting behind it. I got an image of the heron in silhouette against the dramatic backdrop.
