Willet wait to wade

Willet Standing on rock
A Willet(Catoptrophorus semipalmatus) waits on a moss cover rock for some food to pass by. he had been wading in the shallow water near Moody Gardens feasting on thing he found, but decided a little height might make things a little clearer. There were several Willets further down the shoreline, but they protested when I came near --probably they had a nest there at their Galveston Island, Texas spot.
