X marks the spot?


Pigeon Guillemot | Guillemot colombin | Cepphus columba: As my regular followers know, I prefer bird photos showing direct eye contact with the subject, not to mention some light reflection in the eye. In this case, however, I was pleased with the detail in the wings and back, as well as the fact that the bird and its shadow seemed to be forming an “X.”

Taken on June 24, 2015, from the Burrard Dry Dock Pier in North Vancouver, BC, Canada, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED (ISO 720, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/1000). Not baited, called in or set up.
