    Looks like he was trying to maintain his balance. I get some good wing position shots from GBH's that are walking in shallow water. They often use their wings to balance like we do our arms.

    Nice shot. :smile:
  3. I wondered if the projected shade would help seeing in the water. Thanks for the explanation.
  4. Sometimes fish will head towards shade, thinking it's a safe spot. Birds have learned this and adapted well - I think that's what this bird is doing, I've seen it before. Good capture!
  5. Ah ha ! Wise bird hey. Thanks for the info.
