This picture is a tribute to my camera. I was outside with Marian and she yelled, “Hey, are those pelicans?” I whirled around, pointed the camera in the right general direction, and snapped off a burst of photos. The camera’s autofocus caught this one perfectly.
UPDATE: Marian may have said, “Hey, are those pelicans,” but according to my commenters it’s a great blue heron. Visiting from Dana Point, maybe.
