Day of the Great Blue Heron

Composite photo of a GBH silhouette (mask layer) combined with a BG bottom layer I created for this image. The original photo was taken last year in hazy light, near sundown.

Thank you, Lisa, Tarun, Stan, Jeff, and Amalia! I appreciate your encouraging feedback! :-) It's around this time of year that the several herons (and cormorants) nest in a tree on an island in a nearby lake. I really enjoy watching them fly to and from the tree, but often the lighting, or the sky in the background, is not optimal. Thanks again, everyone!
