Great Blue Heron 28

EXPLORE # 368 on October 31, 2009 ~
A Great Blue Heron at Lake Grapevine on October 6, 2009. It was a gray overcast day. The heron was dark against the water so I over-exposed the shot by 1/3 f-stop. When I adjusted the highlights with Picasa, the almost colorless background came out white leaving nothing but heron and reflection.

    Wow, the blown out water all round really works here. And the reflection of the heron is really cool.
