Magical sunrise at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve. While Bolsa Chica is a legend in the birding and bird photography communities, I did not fair so well in my San Diego Workshop trip.  The sunrise was magical, and I created the pan blur below.  Some days it’s just better to enjoy the view.

I did add a few new species to this year’s goal of photographing 500 species of birds.
