It's foggy and misty and there's all that glare, so I did not expect much. And I lack much in the way of telephoto capabilities.

But I hadn't seen a scoter in a long time, so we're going to take the picture anyway.

(and you see two guillemots over there)

I had trouble with focus, and I couldn't remember at the time where the control was to tell it to consider only the very center (where the scoter was in the original image).

I also tried one with the exposure bumped +1, thinking that would help the dark bird. Turns out that underexposing it and considering it a picture of water and birds and a bridge and some sand would have been best (and then not worth taking, to be honest).
