I’m always looking for great action or interesting poses when I am out photographing birds and usually I am not disappointed and once in a while I get some very funny images. Mondays just seem like a great day for some humor.
Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja) – Nikon D200, handheld, f6.3, 1/1250, ISO 200, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 400mm
I was laying in the mud of a tidal pool photographing this Roseate Spoonbill when it stretched out its bill, fluffed its feathers and it looked kind of goofy in this frame right before it shook its head.
I was photographing this Long-billed Curlew as it preened on a foggy morning when it gave me this great pose.
Each time I see this image I have to laugh because the pose is so funny, at least I got a catchlight in the eye!
