Beautiful lighting and a striking pose. I love the blue color in the water and I think the green coming in through the corner works very well.

So elegant with their beautiful body lines and sweet 'faces' - and those gentle eyes. Got to love the avocets! A really lovely frame, Cindy.

Great-looking Avocet and I also like the water colors.

A very nice image, Cindy; the outer leg position caught my eye, as a nice touch to the photo.

Beautiful portrait of this American Avocet, very beautiful light, tones and shades on the water, inspire calm and relaxation.
