Willets On A Rainy Morning

I made a project out of trying to make some better images of Willets this summer.

Willet on Rocks

I know trying to find and photograph one species of wildlife does not carry a high degree of success, however there is something about a Willet that just says majesty, especially when they fly. The patterns made by the feathers in their wings are amazing! The problem is that they fly in patterns and at speeds that make them wildlife’s equivalent to flubber ;-).

I need to make some images of Willets in flight!

Images captured with Nikon D700 w/600mm f/4 and Tce1.4-II on Lexar Digital Film.
