American Oystercatcher from Fort Desoto Park

Apr 25, 2012 | Animals & Wildlife

This past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot some birds at Fort Desoto Park. I went to Fort Desoto with hopes of getting some Black Skimmer photos but instead found a pair of American Oystercatchers. This would be my first post of these beautiful waterbirds. Single exposure HDR image tone mapped in Photomatix and enhanced using Topaz plugins.
