|This was almost the one...|
However, 1.2 seconds AFTER I pressed the shutter to take the photo above, an even more gorgeous egret sailed across the frame from right to left, right about in the middle of the water, above. The camera sometimes does some type of post shot processing which causes a message to be on the screen which says PROCESSING... so all I could do was watch as the beautiful white bird demonstrated to me that I was actually two seconds early from being in the right place at the right time.

Sure, he looked good enough sitting in the water, but it could have been an incredible photo if I had just been there with my shutter finger two seconds later. So I rode on.
Down in Tempe at the lake, as the sun was setting, I saw them pulling the sail boats out of the water. I thought, ooo, maybe some cool black and white boat pulling out of the water action.
|Nice, but not quite...|
