The day before these images where capture I scouted a promising
sight with high traffic of bird and a few spars Mink tracks
along the rivers mud there was also an abundance of insects for
them to feed.
The following day I set out in the early morning before sunrise
setting up the equipment on the rivers bank. For the setup I
used the D800 with the 200-400 F4 ,15cm bipod and a burlap camouflage draped
over me and the setup.
Being only 18-20cm in length they are a smaller shore bird
that can be found in most rivers and streams in Alberta
A easily frightened bird it was very
exciting to photograph these birds up close
