I received a Nikon D5200 DSLR camera for Christmas in 2014 and started my journey into the world of photography. I am taking online photography classes, attending workshops and taking my camera out every weekend learning, experimenting and having fun. This has been a dream of mine for so long and I'm finally living it.
I was taking photos at the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch on Saturday March 5th. I sat down at Pond 4 and started to watch the American Avocets. These are beautiful birds, so elegant and fascinating to watch.
It's getting to be Spring time and their head colors are getting to turn an orange color. I was watching 6 Avocets and started to take their photos as they went through some kind of ritual.
Below are some of the shots from that day, enjoy...
