Female American Oystercatcher Ready to Copulate

A group of us were photographing a pair of cooperative oystercatchers on the beaches of Fort DeSoto in Florida when what i realized was the female positioned herself as you see above.

I just about stained my underware when i realized what was about to happen and that i had a teleconverter on my lens and no time to move back to allow enough room to compose a good mating image.

Right after i shot this image i tore off the teleconverter with reckless abandon hoping like hell to get a good mating image!
