I photographed this nesting killdeer sitting on eggs out at the Trinity River Audubon Center. I photographed her sitting on the eggs, but the eggs would just disappear under her and it just looked like a bird sitting on the ground. So I waited until she got up to rearrange and I could see the eggs too, then I clicked away. Much better!
