The weather is still sunny and nice enough to visit the great outdoors in this part of the world.

Our weekly pilgrimage to Bodega Bay, California, yielded the image above. I took a series of 25 photos showing this snowy egret (Egretta thula) feeding on crabs it had found at the banks of Doran Creek. Eventually I might post the rest of photos in the series in my Flickr page.

Once again, my trusted Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM zoom lens came through with flying colors.

Technical data: f/5.6, 1/800th sec, ISO 100.
