National Geographic Shot

This is my idea of a National Geographic shot if they published one of mine. I was photographing birds and found this Egret sitting on the guardrail of a small dock. It allowed me to approach to about ten feet away or so.

I snapped many photos but this one is my favorite. It represents the best lighting angle and a dark background to offset it.

These Black-necked Stilts are among my favorites to watch. I usually see them along the Ballona Creek as I ride on bicycle. Their quick, jerky head movements are memorable to see.
