Some fun @ Bolsa

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Ron Reznick, Jun 1, 2007.

  1. Jeff Wear and I goofed off over at Bolsa Chica today. The pickings were a little thinner than usual (and it was pretty windy too), so we decided to have a little fun and try for some unusual shots. Here are five I thought you'd like. Hopefully, Jeff will post some of the fabulous shots he got (there are some real smokers!). I'll put up the five and a link to a temp folder with some more... don't forget to click on the images to see the correct rendering. Have fun!

    and last, a tricky shot. If you know Terns, they can maneuver like hummingbirds on steroids... imagine when one is trying to steal a fish from another! Sorry about the chopped wingtip and tail, and it's not quite as sharp as I like, but enough excuses:
