    John, your shorebirds are always quite lovely to view. No exception here.

    Stunning low vantage point, do you use a bean bag or just hand brace?

    Love the composition and the simple, sweet sand. Is that just water streaming down or some sort of dinner/worm?

    hi John,


    The shooting angle and background are perfect. The bird is special to me. water drop effect.
    my eyes searched for some detail in the whites of the throat (can be ignored )

    congratulations.

    Love this one John, superb timing. Personally I'd have put the bird a little lower in the frame but otherwise spot on for me

    Thanks, Brian.

    Hand brace.

    Yes, that is dinner.

    pleasing frame John, it has a spot light effect, nice colors and details and the small snack is a plus too!

    My kind of shot. Agree with Mike that a bit lower in the frame would help.
