Something is definitely wrong with this picture.
I head out into the wild looking for the consummate wildlife image. I have visions of shooting regal-looking animals in gorgeous natural vistas, dappled with perfect light.
Or maybe I’m capturing the perfect interaction between two wild critters, or a life and death struggle as a predator tries to stave off starvation while its prey tries to live another day. So many possibilities …
My photos are going to win the grand prizes of grandiose wildlife contests and pay me like I won the lottery.
My daydreaming is rudely interrupted when I realize that I just took a picture of a pelican mooning me. Ah well, maybe next time.
