Big Bird is Back!

December 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

This was the view as I pulled into the parking lot at Bolsa Chica.  It was 6:35AM and the sun was just peaking over the hills to the East; there were a few birds floating in a "gaggle", but no action! It was quiet.


A few minutes later, I took this shot of a Grebe floating alone in one of the large channels of Bolsa.  I like these types of shots ... they remind me of how small we are compared to the immensity of nature. I think, too often, in our modern day lives, we loose that perspective.  


And, then, out of nowhere, Big Bird circled the area and came in for a landing. The next six images are part of a sequence of 15 that I captured as it touched down.







I was panning with the camera from left to right in the sequence and managed to get the bird in roughly the same part of the image throughout the landing... that's "goodness" in an action sequence.

Thanks for stopping and taking a look,
