This fellow wasn't too worried about us, but rather coping with the 30+ knot winds cutting through the Edith Read Nature Reserve, located near Playland, on the Long Island Sound shore, in Rye, NY. I was getting within 30-40 feet of him, with no sign of concern coming from him. Apparently, he's a regular and answers to the name Max. Or is it Maxine?
The first shoot I thought would be killer, but the eye lid of his left eye is partially closed. I seem to have a hallo effect going on against the brilliant blue. Any thoughts as to why I'm getting this and how I can control it?
