Beautiful Avocet. American Avocet we get here on other side of the mountains is very similar far as body and bill shape, but different colors.

I really like how the wingspread shows off the beautiful markings of this bird. Lovely capture.

Beautiful back image of this species right on your shadow line; great head position with highlight in the bird's eye.  Looks like it was just beginning to put on the brakes before landing.  Oftentimes its difficult to pan correctly to capture this, because of the sudden deceleration.  Well done.

Clement, a great top view angle to fully appreciate the striking black and white patterns on the Avocet!  BG is excellent too, a wonderful flight capture.
