American Oystercatcher in sea foam

American Oystercatcher in sea foamAmerican Oystercatcher in sea foam – Nikon D200, handheld, f7.1, 1/1000, ISO 320, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 400mm, natural light

Just a simple post of an American Oystercatcher about to be awash in sea foam at Fort De Soto’s north beach taken back in September of 2008. Looking at the waters of the Gulf again reminded me of how refreshing they could be on a hot day photographing birds on the west coast of Florida.

Happy Friday the 13th!

    Beautiful bird – his bill is massive, and I like the bright orange color of it.
