Escape I frequently go to Punta de Hidalgo, a coast full of natural pools of volcanic origin, where every winter we can observe dozens of migratory water birds. In one of my visits I observed how a gray plover was looking for food near the coast, at which time I also observed that the wave was breaking and the bird was going to take flight, I immediately prepared hidden behind a relatively close stone. I was able to get three shots, of which "Escape" is what I was looking for. Nikon D500, Lens Sigma 150-600 f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports, ISO 1250, lens 600 mm, f 6.3, 1/2000 seg.
