Everything about this shot went wrong. It should be in the trash pile, but it’s funny.
I went for a long shot of colors and a Great Blue. Pretty basic photograph.
As I held the shutter (for 4 different images) everything went south,
First, what looks like a Cormorant zoomed through, splashing water, messing with my focus, general disruption.
Next, look at the Herons head. There is a Swallow almost hitting him. Bugs are always an issue, Swallows show up early morning. At times there are A LOT of Swallows. Like this morning.
It was a busy morning with all the locals out and about at the same time.
