The sprint

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Cheng Niu

This shot was taken during my winter trip in Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida. It was a beautiful morning and I was sitting on the dock watching those seabirds. I was trying to take some pictures but they were moving fast and it was really hard to follow. I finally managed to focus and got this shot of the moment of a sprint. It was her 4th try.

Location: Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida
