Weekly Photo Challenge: Breakfast


Ya gotta love the photo challenges as they always have me searching my photos for an appropriate capture.  So this challenge kind of made me think about my new home routines that revolve around seeking my next subject.  Its pretty simple, I to to Starbucks, get a latte, then choose a location that I think might be good that day – thats my new photographic routine.  What made me think of telling you that is that it started when I got the camera that I’m using now (a Nikon D7000 if anyone is interested).  My photo for the day was taken during my 1st or 2nd session out practicing with the new gear.  I grabbed my Starbucks and headed for the San Diego River inlet to see if could catch some birds in flight.  After getting a few good shots of herons and egrets, this kingfisher came into the little inlet and started making his headlong plunges into the water.  I got a few good shots of him hovering and during his dive, but this was the “keeper” in my book – he hit his target but looks like he lost his “breakfast” during the process.  Anyway, I hope you like the photo – taken during one of my breakfast expeditions.
