Even when I live in South Florida, where they are plentiful, especially wintertime, I have to admit that I do not see juvenile blue herons that often. Early morning I headed for a small pond near by with the hope some birds would stop by. Surely, I was lucky enough! This young fellow stayed long enough searching for food to allow me to photograph with my D70S and 70-300 VR lens with VR off. The light was a little warmer for my taste so in Photoshop CS3 I changed the color temperature to 5100 degrees Kelvin adding some coolness to my taste. Gitzo tripod, Linhof ballhead. No filters.
