Great blue taking flight at sunrise
Photographer: Andy Long
Location: Fort DeSoto Park; St. Petersburg, FL
Story: 
My first morning with using my new 600mm lens. Found this great blue heron in a beautiful spot for the pre-sunrise color. Had taken numerous shots of it just posed in the water but wanted one of it taking off before the color left. Had just switched to horizontal and positioned it on the left side and it took off. Just one shot but it was what I wanted.
