Red Knot

Dreary day on the beach.

Viewed 19 Times

As the wind was blowing on this dreary October day, I was watching this Red knot as it rain around the edge of the water looking for food.. I lowered myself to my normal shore bird position, on my belly with a ground pod holding my lens. I was shooting off pictures at a distance when I noticed my camera would not auto focus anymore.. What could be the problem??? Oh as I looked up from my viewfinder I noticed the Red Knot had walked right up to the front of my lens and well within my focal distance of my 500mm F4 lens.. Not a bad situation to be in..

Nicely done. I like the pose and the hint of red on the breast of this bird. The low angle really adds to the image.
