Crappy photo of a juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron – Nikon D500, f7.1, 1/1000, ISO 400, Nikkor 500mm VR with 1.4x TC, natural light
I’ve taken my share of crappy photos during the time I have been focused on photographing birds but this photo of a juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron crapping in flight may be the crappiest of them all.
I was photographing birds at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge one morning last August when I spotted a young night heron flying towards me, I aimed my camera towards the bird, tried to focus and hit the shutter button, I had no idea at the time I was going to get such a crappy shot.
As a bird photographer I am very much aware that I will have good days and bad days in the field and that some days are just plain crappy. August 27th, 2017 was one of those days.
Life is good. Have a craptastic day!
