Nature clicks #110 - Willets

  Willet #1

As you can imagine I made many clicks last week on Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake, Utah. Back home I have to make the difficult decision which photos to choose for the blog or for my galleries at Pbase. Not always easy! First I look for images with a good light and mood. The first one is from my Saturday morning session and I love how the subtle light touches the Willet in the shallow water.

The second criterium is story telling. A particular gesture can make all the difference between one photo and the next. The Willets are not particular pretty birds but it looks sometimes almost elegant how they move in the water and search for food or clean themselves. The pictures that captured these gestures stand out from the rest and that's why I have chosen them. Still more to come...
