I don't normally see whole flocks of Willets, but this group- was posing nicely just as the sun came up.

The above Willet must be the same guy whose been harrasing me for weeks. I can tell because he's loading up to spit on me. Certainly cursing my ancestors and relatives out...:lol:

Great shots, lovely crops and use of light. The light especially. You are getting some really nice stuff with that camera/lens combo ...and your sense of composition, of course.

Beautiful shots Dave. I really like the first shots with the low light and shadow.

These birds are here for the Horse shoe crab mating season. This normally takes place from early May to the end of May. When it occurs the beach and tidal ponds are full of these huge crabs, some of them as much as twenty pounds, publicly and shamelessly fornicating on the beach - And laying a HUGE amount of egs.

This year they started very late and did not all come out at once. In fact some of them are still at it. So while I did not get this mass run of shore birds; instead they've also been coming in small groups at odd times.
