In composing this image of a Piping Plover, I was able to isolate the bird in front of tidal pool at Sandy Point State Reservation, Ipswich, MA. With my position prone to the ground and eye level with the bird, the background was rendered a soft out-of-focus pastel color. I photographed these birds using a Canon EOS 7D, a 300 mm F/2.8 L IS lens, and a 1.4x tele-extender under early morning sun.
