The rich colors of sunset and the delicate silhouette of a great egret were captured at Merced National Wildlife Refuge in California. “When we got there, the egret was way off to the left (out of the frame) in the shadows,” writes Rick Derevan. “But we waited, hoping it would work its way into good light—and it did.”
