An Image To Remember

Some of you may have noticed the quote that has been on the website "Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter." -Ansel Adams

Well I was recently in New Iberia, LA working with the Gulf States Camera Clubs when I had the opportunity to get out one morning to photograph Spoonbills. The light was beautiful and I looked over my left shoulder and saw darker foliage and envisioned a Spoonbill rear lit in flight. I sat and waited about 10 minutes and low and behold there it was!! A spoony had left the nest and flew behind the rookery and that is when I knew it was time. As it came from behind the trees I knew I had that image I had envisioned and boy did I ever click the shutter. As I peered through my Hoodman Loupe, I knew it was time to stop shooting and get those files backed up. I had just captured one of my best ever images.
