An odd angle, low light, and a rising sun combined to make this heron appear to be on a multi-color backdrop. It is amazing how you can be at the same place, looking at almost the same thing, but have it look totally different based on the light coming in. The Neuse River is a magical place at sunrise and sunset. Immersing yourself in that magic in a canoe or kayak is the best way to see the river.
