Fremont Central Park (5/31/2014) - Fremont, CA (Part 2)

As you guys know, ever since I moved out of Fremont, CA, I haven't visited Central Park (Lake Elizabeth) much after. I recently met up with a friend at the park and took some photos. I will be splitting the photos I shot there into 2 parts. I have some scenery shots, some flower shots, and some wildlife shots. I hope you enjoy viewing these photos. These photos were shot on 5/31/2014.

The photos for today will include some street photography type shots, bird shots, and scenery shots.

After the photo of the Huqin player, I walked toward the lake and there it was, a Double Crested Cormorant (Phalacrocorax auritus) seems to have caught itself a meal! Good thing I was on my wildlife lens. 

I quickly did several action type shots of the bird as it was killing and devouring its prey. 

I think this was my best shot in this series of photos. 

Photography Tip: To catch moments like this, if your camera body offers a custom mode on the mode dial (example: C1, C2, C3) I recommend keeping the last stop on that dial set to settings for actions shots. That is why I was able to catch this moment. There was no time to dial in the settings. It was I turned my dial to the mode and fired away. This bird dived underwater in just about half a minute.

Two more photos of the bird eating the fish. 

Now two scenery shots of Lake Elizabeth.
