A Great Blue Heron (Ardea Herodias) about to take off in the golden light of sunrise on Galveston Island, Texas, USA.

I hope this at least ends up at 6.5, but I have not idea how this will be perceived since I am relying on the title to some degree.

My actual name for this photograph is "Golden Rocket", but I changed it for this challenge............kind of wonder if it would do better/worse with the original name..........

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes to the challenge well

Ah, that lovely golden hour. Great use of the light to transform this into something special that stands out, the light together with good timing of the moment. Your predicted score was spot on and your ribbon, once more, well deserved, well done Ronnie
