One of those quick shots taken early in the morning before you actually have time to organize yourself.
I can be an over-organizer but have found if I don’t do my setup as I’m starting out the whole day can have a series of bad shots. It’s like I never get things right should the any action occur.
This had the potential to do that. I walked between sections of tall grass and found a flock of White Pelicans flying right at me.
The good news was they did not come in a mass, two or three at a time. That gave me time to change my settings for really low light… after taking the first shots way too fast and dark.
