Avocets Landing in Golden Light

Here is a group of Avocets coming in for a landing showing some golden light on their wings.  Taken shortly after sunrise at Bolivar Flats.  I was crawling towards a group of Avocets at the end of a sandbar when several small groups would fly in and land near the other group.  I could see the golden light reflecting of their wings and took bursts of shots when they would bank just before landing.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens on skimmer ground pod

1/400 sec @ F5.6, ISO 500, spot metering + 2/3 exposure compensation

  2. Thanks Doug. I didn’t get too many decent shots after they landed so I was happy with this one. I need a longer lens 😉
