Title Balancing Last Bittern
Category Gold Color
Location Anahuac NWR, Texas
Reason For Making the Image After a long, hot, busy day, travelling and photographing in Louisiana, I was delighted when we returned to one of our favorite birding spots around Shoveler Pond in Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, Texas. We were there late afternoon and the almost setting Sun dropped a nice light to the dense reeds at the West side of the pond. We drove very slowly and looked for birds in these nice yellowish-brown reeds. Suddenly a least bittern landed to one of the reed sticks, which bended diagonally and the bird balanced on it. I liked the diagonal reed with the bird and and the vertical reeds compositional harmony. However, I knew that I do not have too much time. I composed and focused to the bird eye. I was able to take two photographs before the bird flew away. This photograph was the highlights of the day.
