Avocet with Breeding Plumage
My day job and non-cooperative weather has kept me away from photography lately so it’s time to dig into the archives. Found this Avocet that was coming into his breeding plumage at Bryan Beach, TX last summer.
Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II head
1/500 sec @ F4, ISO 500, evaluative metering
Wonderful. Without any knowledge or perspective it could be the size of an ostrich!

Thanks Lyle. Looks like I got extra low on this one. The shoreline around the pond was very flat so it was like being in the water.

This weather is crazy, hot cold, hot cold. Hopefully it will settle out soon and you back in the grove. Good breeding plumage and fontal shot.

Thanks David. I’d just like to see the sun come out on weekends.
