The picture you should have had
I was out today looking for birds, I didn't see much interesting, a couple of ducks, some geese, a couple of shorebirds, nothing new and exciting. As I was on my way back in I saw a log that had some geese and ducks around it so I figured I'd get a few. I started snapping, and I was so intently focused on snapping pictures of these mallards that I just barely noticed a huge splash about 30-40 feet away. Of course it only took me a second to realize that I had just missed the osprey I saw last week going into a nose dive right into the water. My realization was confirmed when a few seconds later, the osprey came out of the water. I almost cried, I was so upset with myself for missing that. Fortunately, he didn't catch anything so I got a chance to get some video of it hovering, and later I saw it catch a fish but I wasn't close and you can't see the bird in the picture I got of the second dive.
Anyone else ever had that happen before, where you were just taken off guard by the perfect National Geographic quality shot and you didn't get it? It's really is a horrible feeling.
A repeat of history would mostly not be a good thing.
