Got these shots of an avocet at the pond by where I walk hills.

After seeing the great avocet shots posted here I was totally surprised and happy to see this one at the pond. I think these are the prettiest birds. I felt very lucky to have a chance to photograph one.

Well done! Those are very lovely shots (and a lovely bird... I've never seen one myself.) The lighting and exposure are particularly well done. It shows off its plumage well.

Thanks Eric.

I struggle mightily with exposure so I really appreciate your comments.
