Godwit on Beach
 

This solitary Marbled Godwit uses its long bill to probe the mud for snails and clams. A member of the sandpiper family, this shorebird grows up to 20" long [50cm]. This scene was exposed for the delicate pastel highlights shimmering on the water, throwing the bird into silhouette. A high shutter speed freezes the light on the water, and stops the action of the waves.
