…morning light is magic…

Long Billed Silhouettes

Another quick trip to the Gulf coast yesterday found several Long Billed Curlews at sunrise that were prime time for some silhouette shots.  Was hoping for some more Skimmers but didn’t see any on this trip.  The randomness keeps me going back as you never know what you are going to see.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500 F4 IS II with 1.4X III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head

  1. That’s fantastic. I can see the allure of going back.

  2. Thanks Lyle. It sure beats staying home and watching TV in the mornings. It’s getting harder though to go 2 days in a row. My old body isn’t getting any younger.
