    Long-Billed Curlew (Numenius americanus) on Morro Strand State Beach, CA 26 Feb 2008 - Photo by Michael "Mike" L. Baird bairdphotos.com, Canon 1D Mark III w/ 100-400mm IS w/ 1.4XII TE handheld. [9:20 PM 26feb2008 I replaced the original with a better version of this photo with more brightness and exposure].
    I was tempted to Photoshop in some additional catch light in the eye, but resisted the temptation.
