Since there is not a lot going on at the reservoir, I thought I would post a photo taken back in May. This one of a Spotted Sandpiper.
I took this one under a cloudy sky to try and get a different feel.
Unfortunately the background is not ideal, but I do not think it is horrible, is it? I am looking forward to when the shorebirds arrive at this location again, since it is so close to my home I can go almost whenever. But right now if I want to shoot shorebirds I have to go to the Village Creek Beds which is a farther drive from my home.
I have been unlucky there so far anyway.
So anyway, let me know if this photo works for you!
