    It was such a treat photographing a few species of shorebirds in breeding plumage a couple of weeks ago, as these guys normally skip right over us in spring. This beautiful turnstone look so good in the warm light of the low sun.

    Hi Dan, I echo all the positive comments. I am with Artie in missing the toes a bit, unfortunate that the sand got in the way. Thank you for sharing.

    Pretty much killer Daniel. I can see why this was such a special morning.

    Light, perspective, feather detail just so sweet. A real joy to view, TY!
