American Avocet at Sunrise
This Avocet was posing nicely for me on a cold winter morning at sunrise. Wish I was there this morning in the same conditions but rain and cloudy weather kept me grounded. Gives me some time to process more photos like this one. Another close-up shot with only minor cropping to a vertical format.
Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4X III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II
1/200 sec @ F9, ISO 800, evaluative metering +2/3 exposure compensation, 700mm
