Misty Morning Avocets

| 5 images

A week past, when I first went out to photograph the Avocets, there was a heavy mist coming off the water. I was a little bummed at first, water vapor can be killer on detail…but after seeing these photos full size, I thought the whole overall scene was quite nice. The mist picked up the mid-morning sun, creating a nice atmospheric effect. The avocets are beautiful little birds, as well. Rather large for a shore bird…about as big as one of the small ducks (like a Bufflehead, maybe a little smaller.)
