Wilson’s Phalarope Catching an Insect
Here are a couple full frame shots of a Wilson’s Phalarope taken at Bryan Beach, TX earlier in the year. My first time seeing one of these little guys. They were moving very fast and darting everywhere. I didn’t know what they were trying to catch until I got home and saw the second photo.
Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens on Skimmer ground pod.
