Red Knot

With the sheer volume of birds on the beach this morning it was mostly impossible to isolate a single bird. The task became more about finding birds next to interesting things. In this case a Red Knot stands behind a flipped Horseshoe Crab on the Delaware Bay beach. This was only 30 minutes after sunrise so the light was perfect, a clear spring morning. Taken at Reed's Beach in southern New Jersey. ~ 5/20/16 - ¹⁄₈₀₀ sec at f/5.6 - ISO400 ~ 500 mm ~ 500 mm f/4
