Marbled Godwits

I do enjoy the beauty of the Marbled Godwits often found at Tokeland, but I also find it frustrating trying to get a good picture of them because they are so crowded together that it’s nearly impossible to get all of the birds in the frame in focus.

And how do you crop a shot of them without leaving spare body parts littering the scene?

Trying to get a good group portrait reminds me of trying to get a shot all eight grandkids with a smile on all their faces.

  1. I know the feeling Loren. Maybe it would be better to stop trying – I think they are such beautiful birds that the overall effect is one of pattern – in which case the odd bird part doesn’t matter so much.

  2. Your photos are always a treat, and migrating shorebirds fantastic. Lucky for us that you’re right there, patiently capturing these avian wonders. Enjoy the autumn.
