I was working on photographing silhouettes of these Semipalmated Plovers as they walked in front of the sun. This one paused right before it got to the setting sun and the colors in the sky as they glowed in the background were really pleasing to me so I stuck with this shot. I've really enjoyed shooting a lot of silhouette and back-lit photos lately.
