Morning Melody

I took the Nikon 300mm lens and TC-20E III 2x teleconverter to photograph some birds yesterday. At sunrise, I could hear the birds chirping their morning melody.

I saw a lot of hummingbirds.

Although it was low tide, I did see a handful of birds still around, including this American Avocet with two chicks in the background.

I like how the colors of the hummingbird’s head really came out. I didn’t notice the distracting branches until I was viewing the photo on the computer. 🙁
