    Hey Mike -
    I'm glad you posted your avocet shots. All very good, and as everyone else has said #3 is a stunner. Where the heck was I looking when that happened? :frown:

  9. Can't get sick of them :smile:
    Stilts and avocets are my favorite shorebirds really like 3 and 4. 1 love on the wing shots but there is something very graceful about them just wading.
    Since I have yet to get a good flying shot that my excuse and I'm sticking to it :biggrin:

    I too love Avocets when they fly they have the whit and black diamond pattern and when they switch direction in unison it is fantastic
