Shake it Up!
Photographed through a haze of sand obstruction, an American Oystercatcher shakes to clear off excess water and to align its feathers. The Oystercatcher had walked over a hill of sand and stood stubbornly just beyond it. Because my aperture was wide open and the shorebird was far enough away from the edge there is no focused line of sand. I really like the milky foreground blurring that this provided and look forward to experimenting more with this technique. June 15, 2017
