Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1331)
Canada (Ontario) Amherst Island - Kingston. This was luck. Watching a pair of Killdeer in their mating ritual is not something you can plan for. Before the male hopped onto her back he approached closely and she remained steady. I knew what was possible so I grabbed the camera and a few seconds later he was on top. The whole scene lasted about 10 seconds.

I missed the very start because of settings but I did manage a few that worked.

It certainly was that day. Killdeer everywhere were freezing in the early morning, hunkering down low to the ground or almost huddled together to keep warm. I guess this took their minds off it for a brief time
