My friend Russ Lynch and I headed out to Virginia Lake this past weekend to photograph Greater Yellowlegs. The morning started off with some beautiful light but it quickly faded before our subject moved into a good posting for images. Heavy clouds covered the skies for the next half an hour or so then things suddenly cleared and we were left with nothing but the intense sun. Typically I would pack up my gear and head home but something was telling me to keep shooting. Every so often the Greater Yellowlegs would hope up on this rock and pause from fishing for a few moments. Though the light seemed intense I was happily surprised to see the results of this portrait...just goes to show you should shoot in all conditions as you just never know what you light come away with.
