The difference of a few seconds

I was down shooting sunset at Fort Casey this weekend, and the wetlands by Crockett Lake were full of a whole host of birds. As I was photographing this heron, a ray of light broke out from behind the clouds and lit up the area we were standing. The difference between these two photographs was only 3 seconds and a small twist of the birds head into the ray of light.

I think that the top photograph is a much more engaging and stronger image with the face and eye a glow in that warm sunset light. All that was required of me was to keep my eye to the camera wait those few seconds.  Atiny little bit of light makes all the difference.
