We didn’t see many of these herons last summer. This striking bird made up for that though by giving us a lot of opportunities for photographs. He preened and napped and didn’t fly off while we were photographing him. The changing light due to the clouds passing overhead made the shoot challenging. The reflections from the lake also effected the lighting on the bird. In Photoshop I corrected the yellowish/green colour cast on the heron using a Hue/Saturation layer. This adjustment effected the surrounding greenery, making it less vibrant. I created a mask on the Hue/Saturation layer to correct this. Wonderful bird, wonderful day!
