Pelagic Trip from Black Point Marina, 9/20/2014
|Sunrise over Miami|
Canon Powershot G7 X
|Royal Terns Near the Jetty|
But it was a very good day nonetheless. I had two lifers: White-crowned Pigeon and Long-tailed Jaeger, and I also saw my first ever Sperm Whales. We likely saw 4 of them, and two of them came close enough for photos. It's tough work getting photos that look remotely interesting of whales, but here's the best I got.
I was also excited that day to try out my new camera, the Canon Powershot G7 X. My Canon Powershot S100HS was stolen, but the guy was caught, and I will receive restitution. I had enough money saved up to upgrade it to the G7X. I must say that so far I'm very impressed with this camera.
Here are some ID shots from the day. I'm not a big fan of these shots, but I'm including them just for photo documentation.
We saw about 30 in flochs like this
We were moving at 20 knots, and the jaeger was even faster.
I couldn't get my camera to focus on the bird before it was just gone.
