Crissy Field, Golden Gate NRA, San Francisco, CA
9/25/2012 I was photographing terns and other birds along the shore when this guy came down to fish. I was hoping to get him skimming, with his lower bill in the water, but missed and got this great shot instead.
Crop, plus modest brighten and sharpen.
