    Default Red-necked Phalarope, male this time

    Another in the series. Two more after this.....

    Canon 600mm f/4 IS II + 1.4x III on EOS 1DX Mark II
    1/3200 at f/5.6, ISO 800
    Processed in LR CC. Cloned out a few distracting spots on water's surface.

    Cheers!

    I'm very glad that you finally got an opportunity to photograph this species. It is always a treat and one of my favorites! I have sneak-peaked at your website so I have seen a few from this session and it looks like the stars alligned with the light, lack of wind and cooperative birds.
    This is very nice frame. Great low shooting angle, exposure and details. I like the reflection and if I were very picky I would like the reflection to not have been intereputed by the mud streack but it doesn't bother me. I love the smooth background in this one even though I see the interest in the ones with more habitat too. Nice to have both!

    Another beauty of one of these birds. Nice light and low angle.

    You really found the spot for these.. Beautiful, minor thing, tiny bit of CW rotation,
    if I line up eyes.

    Boy, you are "rocking" this encounter.
    Love the light, IQ and POV.
    I think you need a little tiny bit of CW rotation.
    I did not notice the break in the reflection from the water/?mud initially but I now find my eye drifts towards it.
    A beautiful image none the less,
    Gail
