Red-necked Avocet

Red-necked Avocet (Image ID 38281)
CommentI was photographing Cockatiel at a small waterhole near Derby when this Avocet took flight towards me. I struggled to lock my auto focus on the bird until the final 3 images as it landed gracefully. The clean contrasting background, the position of the bird and the sharpness of the image all combined to make this my most pleasing image for the year.
