This past Saturday, I was at Merritt Island NWR (Blackpoint Dr) and at various times a Lesser Yellowlegs flew by and sometimes landed not too far from me. Usually when something like this happens, I don’t have time to check my camera setting and get the shot. So I sometimes shoot with the setting I have and hope for the best. Thankfully, with these shots, all turned out well.
