Taking Flight in Misty Moonlight

Night Heron

by nature rules

Birds Photos Contest Entry 
I captured our pond's resident heron taking flight with much interference in the overall, daytime scene. I loved the wings so I started working on a scene to use the entire heron without the noisy bg. This has about 8 hours of work in it. I'm not a pro but I hope you like it. Thanks for viewing.
