It took me a few days to finally photograph both the Male and the Female Common Goldeneye that have been on Ballona Creek. After Robert van de Hoek posted that he had the male on Del Rey Lagoon this morning, I raced down there to try and get some photos. I found him relatively quickly but he spooked and flew back over to the Creek. I immediately relocated him about 300 yards east along the creek. I rushed down there and ran closer every time it dove until I was able to be just 30 yards away precisely where it came back up for air!
