Yes I know, another bird shot :)

This was taken at Elwood Beach pier on a very overcast and windy day. I went down there with Caroline Gorka for a day shoot.

This was one of the many birds hanging around the now dilapidated peer. (Pics to come).

    There is nothing wrong with bird shots. I sit on my porch and shoot birds all afternoon some days!
    This bird shot, however … is FANtastic!!
