Well I am on vacation and said hey why not take some night time shots. I have not done that in a while. I went down town took a few, then went walking up the intercoastal waterway. I was like man this might turn out really good. I kept having strange things in my pictures and was like I need a better place to stand to get some of the "destractions" out of the forground. I as I am walking I see a spot that can get rid of most of my problems but not everything.
Well as stated before it was night time and I walked to this location under a tree. It took a few moments for me to set up my tripod and I hear something around me. When I turn around to look nothing was there, at this point I should have know something was wrong. I get set up and make I think what should have been a 10 second shot I hear this noise again and then feel this wet/stinky fluid and particles hit me. Then I see it hit my camera, I pick it up mid shot and run. Well at this point after I run out from under the "elephant birds" I am thinking to myself at least I didn't look up when it happened.
I had to clean my camera, tripod, and took off my shirt for the 20 min ride home. I do not know what type bird it was but it had to have been a condor because the amount that fell was unreal. I am sure others have better stories than me but figure its a start.
I figure I would at least share the image that got me, not my best but figure in a year or so I will laugh about it.
