This image was taken during a chance walk through the Zeeland Wetlands in Zeeland, Michigan. The sun was high and the bird was dozing close to the shadows of the bank of the pond. It was a perfect set up to isolate the bird in the photo, capturing the beautiful details of this stunning bird and its reflection and removing the dark, busy tangle of brush behind it. "Reaching for the Light", found in my On Black series, was taken that same day under the same conditions.
