What a difference a little sun can make. Nice change of pace from the cloudy weather lately. Found several hundred Avocets feeding yesterday at Bolivar Flats. The tide was low and it was prime time for Avocet photography. I guessed where they were heading and laid down and waited for them to come to me, which is the best way to get close to these birds. Ended up about 20 to 30 ft from a large group of them as they strolled by. Took this one right at sunrise.
