This beautiful and graceful long-legged wader glides through shallow waters swishing its slender, upturned bill from side to side to catch aquatic invertebrates. It dons a sophisticated look for summer with a black-and-white body and a rusty head and neck. During the winter the head and neck turn a grayish white, but the bird loses none of its elegance as it forages along coastal waters or rests while standing on one leg.

      Hi Caleb,

      Thank you!

      We have a Sony A7R IV Full Frame Camera with a Sony 70-200 F/2.8 G Master Lens with a 2X Teleconverter and we are quite pleased with the results, I am glad you like them.

      You have a wonderful day!
