I was focusing on and shooting everything except this Black-crowned Night Heron. Basically he flew into my line of sight.
There is an island off to the left of this photograph that has become a smaller bird rookery the last few years. Unfortunately vegetation is thick so visibility is limited.
Birds leaving the island pop out from the far side and go by so quickly it’s rare to get a good shot.
At first I didn’t even look at these images because I assumed they were out of focus.
For the record; no grand plan here, it just happened.
