The One-Legged Marbled Godwit

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by geoff kronik

Having lost a leg somehow, this Marbled Godwit was managing to hop and feed even so. Water, sand and light let the bird, its shadow and reflection all appear in the frame. Also visible is the trail the bird left as it hopped by the surf.

Location: La Jolla, CA, USA
