Immature Killdeer

Immature Killdeer

I was out shooting at the Ridgefield NWR, Aug. 4, 2015, and pulled up near marker #11.  Four young Killdeer were walking around on the road–they were not shy at all.  I stopped about 20 feet short of the Killdeer group and decided to open my truck door and lay down on the gravel road behind the door with the camera on the ground, shooting underneath the car door.  All four birds stayed right there and let me shoot.  This one gave me the profile pose.

Canon 7D Mark II, 1/1600, f4, ISO 320, 500mm, 11:45 a.m.
