Late in the day, these Greater Yellowlegs came squawking up the edge of this little creek, in total heavy shade....would have been a great shot with some sunlight!

Still and all, great shots, Ian; you got several birds in focus at once in less than ideal light.

Thanks Cheryl and Al. "Less than ideal light" is an understatement Al!

You caught some real nice detail on those Grey Ghost yellow legs Ian, funny how lack of light can change a color like those guys so much, turned out real nice I would say!
