The color in this photo is natural…I took the photo during the “blue hour”.
Actually the “hour” is about 30 minutes long.
The beautiful blues occur twice a day and are fleeting
and even though the colors happen they are not always photographable.
I usually catch these conditions in the fall and early winter.

Hershey flew past, following his mate Godiva by a few minutes.
I hadn’t seen them in a while.
They made me smile with the simple joy of watching their flight.
This is Hershey.
