Marbled Godwit in a tidal lagoon

Marbled Godwit in a tidal poolMarbled Godwit in a tidal lagoon – Nikon D200, handheld, f7.1, 1/800, ISO 200, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 400mm, natural light

Just a single image of a marbled Godwit (Limosa fedoa) that strolled past me while I sat in the water photographing it. Every time I look at this image I feel a wonderful sense of peace, the same feeling I had when I took this photo. Life is good.
