Resting shorebirds for as far as the camera can see! And after flying thousands of miles, who can blame them. I stopped down the f/18, but it is hard to get much depth of field when using telephotos. I kind of like the out of focus effect.
Today (Tuesday) there weren’t as many birds as on Monday when I captured this image. High tide is when the best photography takes place, but today a predator (I believe it was a Merlin) passed over at high tide and cleared the birds out in a hurry. We did get a nice break from the rain.
