Some Dunlins flew by in the same sunset a little earlier
These next Tri-coloreds are actually sunrise. I didn't understand the Kelvin white balance setting at the time and was limited to the 8 or so pre-sets the camera has. I tried different ones which leads to different color tones.
Now I understand that you can use the Kelvin white balance setting to customize it to whatever you want; that's something I'm using increasingly when I can predict what lighting the bird will be in. (Of course if a person shoots in RAW mode instead of .jpg then you can use lightbox/photoshop programs to make the white balance whatever you want afterward; I'd rather keep the post-processing easier and file sizes down with .jpg's).
Finally a flock of Snowy Egrets.
