Pic of the Day

Willet, Tringa semipalmata: Indian Shores Beach, Florida
     As mentioned in the last post, while photographing Black Skimmers I found a few Willets feeding along the waters edge.  The early morning light on the birds was perfect and I could not resist shooting as they probed the sand along the tideline.
     During one of the burst of frames I captured a confrontation between two birds.  I shot more than a dozen frames during the conflict.  This was one of my favorite images out of the series.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500mm f4, 1/1600 seconds @ f8
