These are about the last of the 800mm shots I haven't yet posted here. This is the Greater Yellowlegs. I made the id in the field, if I didn't mark the image, it could just as well be the Lesser, (with the longer upturned beak :?: )

As usual, within a few hours of dawn. In this case, If I recall, about a half hour after dawn. But it was truly "warm" light.

Very good series here Dave. And I really like the first shot of the colorful bird bathed in the warm sunlight. It is very pretty.

Thanks everyone. There is a very interesting feature of shooting at sunrise and sunset. The odd and changable types of light. The early sun, always has a different light when pushing through the different clouds. That morning was such a warm light, it makes the images.
