Red Phalarope

  1. This is my first for this bird. Again, I found it on the Long Beach Peninsula of Washingtion State. Difficult bird to shoot correctly, I didn't get it right but was happy to see it.

  2. Great shot Louis. Looks like you had a much better lighting situation that I had. Excellent exposure on this one. It sure helps to be able to use a tripod.

    Red Phalaropes seem to be rather abundant this year in our area. Must be the storms that drove them in.

    Nice work

  3. Thanks Tim, after reviewing your postings on this bird, your comments are a real compliment. I found it difficult to get the proper exposure for the short time I had to shoot.
    Here's another image I got.

  5. Good shots Louie, I'm sure it was fun to capture this little guy.
     
  6. Nice Louie. It looks like the sun will be out today for the first time in a very long while and I have to work. Too bad, it would be nice to get together. Maybe this weekend.
