p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Greater Yellowlegs


I went up to Conneaut, Ohio this weekend to photograph shorebirds. There is a large spit of sand there that sticks out into Lake Erie. You can drive out onto it and park: it is known as a place where migrating shorebirds often stop on their way south from breeding grounds in northern Canada.

However, this weekend not so much. I arrived at sunrise, but to my disappointment I only found a single Greater Yellowlegs. However, as the morning progressed the bird moved on, but more and more photographers showed up. I think by 9:00 AM or so we must have had most of the owners of long glass in NW PA and NE Ohio standing there all looking at the same little spot of beach / marsh. 8 or 9 of us standing around with not much to shoot... I sure would like to have all the money invested in glass on that beach.

Still, it made for a fun morning swapping stories.

These are beautifully photographed Fred. You might want to level the images. I can tell there off by the ovals of waves which should be level at the two widest points. Instructions to level:

Its some beautiful pictures! You can really see the colors clearly which is so characteristic for shorebirds.

nice job.

Im a biologist and studying birds. Im not the Picture guy, but i use photos and videos to document my results. Otherwise i use Biology equipment, but thats an other thing.

One thing, it could be nice, to see the shorebird more in action, like hunting/attacking, flying. But otherwise its very good quality pictures!

Thank you for the very kind words, I'm glad you liked them. I'm also kind of honored to have your first post in the forums be about my images. Thanks!
