This was was a really fun day! My friend and fellow photographer, Erin, showed me around Bolsa Chica. I had never been there before so it was a whole new place to explore. I got to experience it through the eyes of a birder who patiently told me all the bird names I would later forget and end up asking her for again. I enjoyed the challenge of trying to capture them all, even if I don’t really have the best equipment for it. Most of these images aren’t crisp enough for my satisfaction but they work for posting to the web. It’s always good to do things outside of your photography comfort zone — it pushes you to be a better photographer overall, so I’m glad she’s been getting me back into taking wildlife photos!
