A simple image of a Red Knot taken in Florida in early morning light. Morning has been; and is, my favorite time of day to photograph birds and other wildlife because the rising sun can add drama and a warm glow to whatever subject I am photographing. I was laying on the wet shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico when I photographed this Red Knot in nonbreeding plumage.
Red Knots are a species on the edge of extinction, their numbers are rapidly declining and collectively we need to do everything we can to ensure the survival of these shorebirds.
