Dowitcher in estuary

QUICK NOTE:I now have a personal website - feel free to visit if interested -Infinite World Photography

Thanks! Now back to the regularly scheduled photo post...

A Dowitcher relaxes in between feeding and preening

For the record, laying in rotting mud is no picnic - and the putrid smell lasts long after you get home. But it's very important to me that I get a strong connection to my subject by getting as low as possible. For wading birds and some other animals, this means getting in the mud and water (I wear waders)

A very low angle shot gives you the following benefits:

- a more intimate feeling to the image
- a direct eye-to-eye view
- more connection when you're shooting the photos, which adds to the experience, and enables you to anticipate and capture better moments
- a smoother / softer foreground and background
- shots that stand out, from those of the people who stand up when shooting
- plenty of odd looks and comments from gawking crowds

I appreciate all comments, faves, and follows.
