Willet Catches a Fish

I’ve seen a few Willets catching fish but it’s fairly rare from my experience.  Got some nice side lighting at sunrise on this shot along with an open beak as he was facing in my direction.  Bolivar Flats rarely fails to provide some good photo op’s.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4x III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head

1/640 sec @ F5.6, ISO 500, evaluative metering, +2/3 exposure compensation

  1. Nice timing. Super shallow DOF from that POV. Good light.

  2. Thanks Doug. I miss the sun around here on weekends. It’s been awhile.
