A few shots from May 6 at Columbus Lake. I spied a kildeer sitting on a nest at the edge of the slag road that goes to the marina parking lot. It was late afternoon so the light wasn't optimal from my vantage point facing west but I didn't want to disturb them too much. I did get out of the van and took the last 2 shots from a few feet west but I was not close since I was using the 100 - 400 lens.
