2019—Interrupted Preening

One of a quintet of Ruddy Turnstones looks up as its flock-mates continue preening on Huguenot Memorial Beach near Jacksonville, FL last month, oblivious to whatever alerted him.  I took this with my Nikon D5 and 500mm PF lens with the 1.4x teleconverter attached and high speed crop set to give me an effective reach of 1050mm.  I was laying flat on the beach with my camera affixed to a panning plate mounted on a Frisbee.
