Comment:I spent several days visiting Marlgu Billabong at dawn and dusk. The bird-hide at the billabong enabled me to get good views of many different bird species. This young heron was right at the eastern edge of the hide. The setting sun was so low it was casting light from the west underneath the bird-hide, giving the heron a rich reddish-gold glow. Fortunately the bird stood motionless for long periods of time in the fading light, enabling a sharp shot at just 1/60 sec.
Equipment:Canon 5D mark II with Sigma 150 - 500mm lens at 370mm, 1/50 sec, f6.3, ISO 400 on tripod.
Location:Marlgu Billabong (Western Australia)
Keywords:immature
