Willet
Photographer: David Walsh
Location: Lake Darling, ND
Story: 
I spotted this Willet, picking up cast off fisherman's bait. He would wash it then eat it. I sat with my feet in the water as he constantly went back and forth with his finds. Finally he made his call so close to me that my ears rang! I could not photograph that since he was too close for my lense.
