As I reorganize my image file, I’ve realized that the most photographed animal in my collection, other than wolves and mountain goats, is this bird, the willet. That’s probably because the willets hang out on my favorite beach at exactly the time I tend to be there. I like them a lot — they aren’t brightly colored, but I still think they are sleek, beautiful and graceful, like a grey silk suit.

I’ll be there again the week after Christmas, photographing more willets.

  1. You capture their natural grace very well. The photos are calming, probably partly because of the surrounding beach but also the cool poses of willet.
