September 13, 2013 – Avian Friday: California Wader

Going a little ways back in the archives this week for something a little different. This American Avocet was captured at one of my favorite places to shoot birds, especially in evening light. The location itself is not that special scenically, but the way the sun reflects off the adjacent hillside back over the water and across the birds creates a unique atmosphere with beautiful light and color.
