The dance begins

A few weeks ago I dropped my wife off at SFO and decided to stop by Radio Road Ponds to see what birds were around before the rain started up again. I saw many handsome northern shoveler drakes (which I've posted some shots of previously), but the highlight was getting to watch the courtship dance of a pair of American avocets. I've included an extra shot below in the comments, and a few more on my blog post for today.
