McKinney Falls and a Heron at Sunset 1

Lower Falls - McKinney Falls State Park

Sometimes you just get lucky. This white heron had been dipping its beak in the water from time to time, but never in a good place for me to grab a photo of him. With the sky turning a warm orange in the distance, I changed lenses to zoom into the falls and colors of the sky. And there the bird appeared, perched above Lower Falls of this state park, and even remained motionless long enough to be photographed.
