I’ve been trying to get a few decent photos of the Pied Avocet for a while. Yesterday we saw this one close to the road in the Bantpolder, so we stopped and I tried to get a few pix. Here’s the first photo with the Avocet flying out of the frame.
There must have been a nest nearby, because the avocet tried to lure us away. It succeeded quite well, I was happy to follow it. Now if only it would stay still for longer than 2 seconds.
As you see I finally managed to get a few shots with the bird actually in the frame.
I still hope to get a few close-ups one day 🙂
