CommentIt was fun watching these three Avocets, they’d settle down and feed for a while then scrap with each other for a few seconds before settling and feeding again. They were part of a large flock I was watching from just before dawn and this image was taken about 10 minutes after the sun started rising over the horizon.

(*Note: I have removed a distracting bright circular highlight behind one of the birds in post processing and overlooked noting this when I initially posted the image, hence this correction).
EquipmentCanon EOS 5D MKIII, Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Sports. Prone, handheld, manual exposure and post-processed using DPP4, PSE and Neat Image.
