I don’t break out the supertelephoto very often, but I was intrigued by the incessant trawling off the Nags Head shore and I determined to get a (reasonably) close-up shot of one of the boats.
The Crystal Amanda is recognizable, if much smaller, in comparison to the boats of the tuna fisher fleets that filled the downtown wharves of San Diego in the 1970s when I was growing up. Unexpected, but, looking back, inevitable, was the flock of a million billion birds accompanying the boat in hopes of a free scrap.
