The photo was taken at JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island, FL in Feb. 2012. The rising sun produced a pinkish tinge to the water surrounding the Reddish Egret. But the bird was in shadow because the sun was not yet high enough to eliminate the shade of the trees bordering the water where the Reddish Egret was standing. The "punk hairdo" adds a lot to the image in my opinion.
