    Very nice capture of this speedster. Like the wing positions, and caught just before passing you. Lovely shade of blue/gray sea background.

    Not easy that's for sure! Apart from wishing the front wing was higher, this is pretty darn good. I love the pale blue BG.

    Nothing harder than getting a small shorebird in flight! I am impressed with your keeper rate of 1/20. Mine is more like 1/100!!
    Nice light, sharp and goosdwing position.
    Whites look good (so easy to blow them).

    Nice flight pose of this speedy little bird. Framing is right on as well. Nice detail on the bird.
