At a small wildlife refuge near home in the San Francisco North Bay.
I took a lot of pictures of these birds who were fairly tolerant of my presence. When sorting out the rubbish it came down to the images where they were facing this direction, into the hazy sun were the best. Also having the dark reflected background helped compared to a pure water background.
Surprisingly I was successful in getting a couple decent inflight images.
