A common wader in Mallorca, with a few opportunities in the early morning around the the "Torrent d'Albufereta" which is just south of Puerto Pollenca. A few technical details of which I'm relatively proud - the first two images with reflections were taken at 1/80s and 1/100s using only a monopod - the technique was to hold your breath, squeeze and hope! And the close-ups were using the 500mm lens with a 2x converter, also only with a monopod. Gradually I'm finding that the monopod is adequate in most situations, and so I have a great light-weight travel set up that I can go anywhere with, with the bonus that both converters have a part to play for some really long focal lengths. My small photo bag (Thinktank Streetwalker Pro) that never attracts any check-in attention can take the 500mm, a 1d body, both converters, the monopod, and either a wide-angle or macro lens. All you could really need. Anyhow, hope you enjoy these - wonderful birds, wish we had them here.
