Like Feathers Floating on Water
While the tide rolled in, the feathers on the sand bar around me floated away and helped to highlight this Willet. I didn’t want to move with this Willet being so close so I got a little wet as well. Stayed in place until the water got above my ground pod. The biggest issue with laying in the salt water is that it streams off of your coat sleeves when you get up and can run all over your camera equipment. My Lenscoat raincoat helps to keep the gear dry.
Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II, 1.4x III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head
1/500 sec @ F 7.1, ISO 500, evaluative metering, +2/3 exposure compensation
A very nice unusual touch. Great capture!

Thanks David. The feathers were floating everywhere so it was a cool photo op.
