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.
