Happy New Year!

Today's picture was taken on November 17th. Peanut and I were out on a hike around the wetlands near Shorline Park. We couldn't take LuLu with us because it's a waterfowl wildlife refuse. (I blame the ground owls.) I was taking a picture of this Egret when it decided I was too close and took off. I kept snapping away, and managed to get this (somewhat abstract) picture.

Great Egret in Flight (11/17/2007)

The streaking is caused by the slow shutter speed (1/40s) and my moving the camera to keep the bird in the middle of the frame. The only post-processing I did was to crop the image to make the great egret more prominent.
