American avocet mating ritual #11

This is image 11 of 11 in the series of a pair of American avocets (Recurvirostra americana) going through their elaborate mating ritual. It was a real pleasure to watch the scene unfold in front of my lens, including this final step, when they crossed bills and ran forward. Images were taken in March at the Radio Road Ponds, Redwood City, California.
