I’m no bird species expert by a long shot, but I “think” this is a Shortbilled Dowitcher. I followed this little guy along the surf  at Anna Maria Island on the Gulf Coast. I really liked the contrast of the bird with the bright clear, almost sparkling water. The white sand only added to the vibrant scene. I’ve been more successful this past week photographing birds that I thought I might be. That was my main objective, so I’m pretty happy. We leave for home today, so we’ll soon be back to our normal routine. Part of that will include developing the best of my photos taken in South Florida—some to be posted here. (Nikon D300, ISO 200, 200mm, f11, 1/400s sec. Developed in Adobe Lightroom 2.6)
