It's better to be lucky than good

I just picked up a very used Sigma 500mm f/4.5 lens on ebay that I dragged down to the beach this morning to play with. The weather in So. Cal was total crap this morning, so I didn't think I'd actually find anything worthwhile to photography. But I figured it would be good practice to photography some sea birds whilst I got the hang of such a massive lens.  

Low and behold, I come across an abandoned California Sea Lion pup that is in the process of being rescued by a local non-profit that rescues and rehabs local marine life (http://whalerescueteam.org/). Too bad I got distracted by a flock of Sand Pipers on my walk north as I could have had 15 minutes to photograph this little guy.

 

Two lessons I take away from today's adventures:

1. Always bring your camera even if you don't think you will use it.

2. It's better to be lucky than good.
