One of my favorite types of silhouette photographs to try to capture lately is including the sun in the frame. When the sun finally got low enough in the sky the colors were amazing and I had two Semipalmated Plovers and a Dowitcher working this small exposed area of sand. I was laying in about 3-4 inches of water and splashing all around as I frantically moved left and right trying to line these damn birds up with the sun. They would head one direction, I would get ahead of them in anticipation of them lining up and they would turn. This dance happened again and again.
