I had to share this fellow with you all because he is a lifer.
It was a wonderful surprise to see him at the City Pier out near the breakwater, even though that is a bit far away. His kind are not typically found here in winter.
It is not the best photo I've ever made, but the 100 - 400 did its job in helping me record the event.

No need to apologize for that capture Lillian, it looks very, very good on my monitor!
It's always fun to find the unexpected and then be able to get a good capture. Congrats on the Ringer!

For some reason I cannot get you all on a quote list to thank you personally, so please know that I appreciate each and every one of you for your kindness. It was great fun to simply see this creature at the lake. To make a reasonably decent photo was a blessing.

Thank you all so kindly
