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.)
Gorgeous shot, Jon, and the mist really adds a nice effect.
Oh these are beauties! Love the Avocets they are such elegant birds and great to see ‘Cinnamon Heads’ in breeding plumage.
The mist really adds to the beauty of these pictures
