I captured this image on June 21st, 2014 at Piute Ponds California with my Nikon D7100 and 200-400mm lens. This American Avocet is losing the color of its breeding plumage. I was fortunate enough to get a very clear image of it while it was wading through the water looking for food. I always find these birds very amazing in the way that they go about their daily business and the way that they socialize with each other through actions and sounds.
