I have a fondness for Marbled Gowdwits (Limosa fedoa) because of thier pink and black bills and plumage patterns. They also look very elegant walking, standing, feeding and in flight.
This Marbled Godwit had been feeding on the mudflats of a tidal lagoon at Fort De Soto’s north beach, I like that I was able to get a nice catchlight, a drop of water on the tip of the bill and the shorebird’s shadow.
The coloring of Marbled Godwits make me think of cinnamon, dark chocolate, butterscotch, caramel, Irish Cream and Kahlua.
*I am away for a few days, please feel free to share this post with your friends and family. I’ll catch up on everyone’s great blogs when I get back!
