p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A Quad Of Avocet Images


A few more pics from my trip down to California in March. Avocets are an elegant looking bird, and make for excellent photo subjects. Wish I had more regular opportunities to do them justice. These were all taken at San Joaquin, near LA, handheld via 7D and 400 f5.6.

1. Looking For Food

2. Getting Low For A Better Angle Of View (the bird, not the photographer)

3. A Little Dribble On The Bill

4. Skewered A Water Droplet

Any and all feedback is most welcome. Thank you for stopping by to have a look.

Yeah, Lindsay is right - these are a pretty bird. Beautiful shots too, Ken. I saw one near Kelowna and it was about 140 meters away. I got the shot but would have to crop the heck out of it to show anything. Your shots are stellar.

Looks like you definitely found my favorite pond Ken.
So glad you got to have this opportunity to shoot these beautiful birds.
Well done on all 4 Ken.

Nice set Ken, #1 for me. I like the red color of the reflections on the water in the BG.

I like the low angle with the blurred BG. Great colors too.
Well done.

Very nice job on these, Ken. The low angle creates a nice separation from the bg. 1 and 4 are my favorites

An excellent set- of a really beautiful bird.
The few times I've seen these they were always backlit, and I had no idea of the lovely colors.
I'm probably all wet about this Ken- considering that no-one else has mentioned it- but it seems to me that a bit of sharpening might be of benefit to these images. Any chance that's right?
