16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Hiding in the shadows

A Great Blue Heron waits for a meal near Minnehaha bridge, MN. This picture is a 30 second long exposure and I considered myself lucky to get a shot where the heron didn't move. This picture was taken just minutes before the sun set. The shadows and dark places in the image are what make it so special.
