Willet coughing up a regurgitated mass of sand and shells
Photographer: Carol Weston
Location: Sanibel Island, FL
I was photographing Willets on the beaches of Sanibel and I began to see through my lens, a peculiar thing they did and then they would regurgitate a mass of sand, shells and ? so I set out to photograph as many willets doing this as possible. It was difficult to catch the exact moment but I caught this one as it was happening. not a pleasant photo perhaps but a coup for me, as a photog.
