Pic of the Day

Long-billed Curlew, Numenius minutis; Bolivar Peninsula, Texas 
    The October salt marsh provided the perfect backdrop for this Long-billed Curlew on the Bolivar Peninsula in Texas.  Long-billed Curlews are just one of the many species that winter on the Texas coast.   This image demonstrates how well the cryptic plumage pattern of the curlew allows it to blend into its background.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500mm f4, exposure 1/1250 @ f7.1
