They say the early bird gets the worm, but every so often I've found that the early bird gets a photo opportunity, instead. Today I woke up extra early and was rewarded with a fleeting glimpse of the Yellow Breasted Booby, a rare specimen who zips up and down 7th Street every morning at the crack of dawn in a bike festooned with plastic flowers and stuffed animals. For months, I've made it a personal mission to get a photo of her in mid-flight and for months she's eluded me. But today I was ready. I saw her pedaling towards me, got my Spycam into position and ran discretely alongside her as she crossed San Vicente. "Nice plastic flowers!," I yelled, "and I like your stuffed animals, too!" She just looked at me out of the corner of her eye and pedaled faster, leaving me in the dust. I hope I didn't ruffle any feathers ...!
