Hiding From Me
We were walking in Santa Barbara and passed this canal which was very very stinky from shallow stagnant water. I was torn between wanting to hurry past and taking a photo of a very young Egret with an adorable tuft on its head. I got the camera ready but he/she was too fast for me and tucked under the ledge. I like the photo anyway and wasn't going to stick around in hopes of getting a better shot of the young one.
