Nighthawk Snoozing

Found two Common Nighthawks lying in the gravel at the Texas City Dike.  They were hard to spot and were well camouflaged at a distance.  This one was snoozing but luckily opened his eyes long enough to get a catch light in his eye from the sun.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens with 1.4X III teleconverter, handheld

1/800 sec @ F13, ISO 800, evaluative metering, +2/3 exposure compensation, 700mm
