Wonderful Shots!

I've wished for a long time to get a shot of a Godwit, any Godwit, but they are rare visitors to New York...

Thanks Dave. I was at the beach for BBQ and I saw this godwit along with some pelicans. First time for me to see a godwit and I was able to get couple of shots as light was bad (quite foggy that day).

I really like the look the lighting created in these, actually. Very nice.

Real nice, I like the reflection in the last shot. You seem to be getting all of my birds, they have abandoned me :shock:

Thanks normcar. I haven't done any shooting in last 2-3 weeks as my 400mm prime was at canon for servicing and couple of times when I went out with 100-400L, I had no luck. That day I got lucky, wetehr was nice and light was really golden 9at sunset time) and I was able to get close to some of these birds.

From what I heard from a local guy is that wilson snipe is quite rare. This guy has been hanging in the local park I go to near my home. I think there are 2 of them, maybe a pair.
