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.

1/1600 sec @ F5.6, +2/3 exposure compensation, spot metering, ISO 250

    And the second shot shows…nothing. Love the1st one though. Great action shot, nice light and dead on with focus.
