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.
