I guided two photographers at the Laguna Seca Ranch yesterday. The afternoon was mostly cloudy so I didn’t expect to take action shots, but a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher suddenly appeared on a dead snag over the ranch pond. Suspecting what he was about to do, I made a quick camera adjustment (to 1/2500 second) and captured photos of him as he flew up from his bath-on-the-fly. What a thrill it was to see the results!
