Shakin' All Over

By alpha788
Back from a summer break from forums and posting - missed epz a lot but needed a short break to do other things. Thanks to those who sent me messages - yes, I'm still alive Smile

This Great Blue Heron was taken in extremely harsh light, but the spray effect it created when it tried to shake the fish into submission was neat, so I decided to keep it notwithstanding the light and slight blur caused by all that motion. I thought the title was appropros considering it's the 30th anniversary of Elvis' death.

Will try to get back into the routine of things in the next little while. It's good to be back!
