    Default American Avocets in Breeding Plumage - Feeding

    Hi All,

    This image was made yesterday at Decker Lake, Utah. I was so happy to see American Avocets in Breeding Plumage. I initially noticed it in my birding trip and then went early morning the next. It was little difficult to get the right head angle with them feeding.

    I tried to get a correct sun-angle as I could with the exception of not going inside the pond.

    Let me know your comments.

    Gear:-
    Nikon D500, 500mm f/4 1.7xTCII
    ISO 800, f/6.7, 1/800 sec
    Manual Mode, Matrix Metering
    No Flash

    Post Processing:-
    Cleaned up water to removed dirt
    Leveling and Added a little canvas to the left of the image.
    contrast mask on the part of eye and head
    Noise Reduction and Sharpening

    Lovely looking bird with beautiful colours. Nice pose on the bird, with a good reflection. I would try sharpening the bird a little more. I like how you left the little bug, with its own reflection.

    Will
