In the summer of 2004, we spent some time near Watauga Lake in Tennessee. This large lake has approximately 147 miles of wilderness shore land. We rented a pontoon boat one day and explored many of the coves and inlets. Part of the day we followed this egret and watched him as he balanced on this log. The title doesn't just refer to the egret. I was also fascinated with the balance of sunlight and shadow on the water, as the sun got lower in the sky.
