Foraging Marbled Godwit

Foraging Marbled Godwit



I must admit I have a fondness for shorebirds, their beauty is a big part of why I became (am) addicted to bird photography.

Foraging Marbled Godwit – Nikon D200, handheld, f7.1, 1/750, ISO 200, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 400mm, natural light

I love how peaceful this image is with the Marbled Godwit (Limosa fedoa) paying absolutely no attention to me as I sat very still in the warm waters of a tidal lagoon photographing it. I felt as though I had been personally invited to enjoy the scene before me. It felt intimate and enchanting.
