Strutting Avocets

These Avocets were strutting their stuff along the gulf coast.  Used negative exposure compensation to keep the white highlights from blowing out after checking for “blinkies”, i.e. flashing highlights.

  1. Great job keeping the highlights under control. As usual, nice clean backgrounds and “bird’s eye” view.

  2. Thanks Doug. It’s a good time at Bolivar when the birds cooperate.
