Default Willet In Rain

Shot with FZ150 and TCON-17. Tripod used. Hat held over camera to keep rain off, and camera blotted with paper towels and put in plastic bag after shots. Click to see more under this on Flickr if you wish.

Around 25 feet or a bit more. I did not want to get too close in the rain. These are fairly large shorebirds, and I cropped a bit. Uncropped version below.
