I saw the most remarkable thing this weekend while walking on a beach in Alameda near San Francisco. A couple of thousand small sea birds took flight near me. Their coloring flashed white and gray in a great undulating wave as they danced over the water. It was like watching a National Geographic nature program, expect that it was breathtakingly real and happening with a few yards of where I was standing. I regret not having a good HDR video recorder.
I shot this on the beach in Alameda with my Nikon D7000, which has a good HDR video camera – only I was using a lens that made it impossible to shoot the flock in flight.
