First light of the day... fluffed up

Killdeer start nesting earlier than most of the shorebirds. I have been watching this Killdeer near my home. They are fun the watch even more fun to photograph.


This  was shot early last month (Apr 2008) in almost perfect light just before the sunset. This is pre-mating behavior when the bird try to balance on top of the partner. The actual mating happen takes a split second and momentum take the birds in opposite direction
