Baby killdeer

Thanks to a phone call from friend Steve Harding I was able to catch this mother killdeer and baby yesterday at their ground nest on the edge of Pierre.

When momma began dancing around doing her "broken wing" act, I knew something was close enough for her to feel threatened.

Here's what it was and the shot I didn't get due to really shallow depth of field with a 600mm lens.
