Bird Photos: Sandpiper and Stilts Reflect in Rain
This series of photos was taken shortly after noon on March 14, 2015.
A little rain sends some people, with cameras, running but, I liked the light and reflections.
Pentax cameras and lenses are made for this sort of weather.
Using the Pentax K3 and a prime 300mm lens, I stayed with the birds and got wet.
The bird in the foreground is some sort of sandpiper.
Misidentifying a bird can really get the bird experts riled-up so, I won't be guessing here.
It's a lot more fun standing in the rain than, arguing with the bird people.
The birds in the background are Black-winged Stilts (Himantopus himantopus).
Those are the birds my wife calls Aliens.
