A Spotted Sandpiper defends his territory in the evening sunlight.
Photographed at Cherry Creek State Park in Colorado, with a Canon EOS 7D, Canon EF 600mm f/4 L IS II, on a Gitzo GT3532LS + Jobu Pro2 Gimbal. Evening light as the sun was setting behind a brewing storm, which brought in some beautiful yet subtle orange highlights.
Exposure: 1/500s f/4 @ ISO 800
