    I really like this, those black legs look gorgeous! Delightful colours and an interesting pose.

    Hey Joe, A perfect adult basic (winter) plumage Sanderling it is. Lovely image. A suggestion: as there is more room above the bird than below, and because the background above the bird is much nicer and softer, move the bird down in the frame. (I.E., there is too much empty space below the subject.) If you do not have more room above it is a snap to add canvas.

    with love, artie

    Lovely capture, Joe. Yes it is a Sanderling, in a very nice pose with good detail. A tad more space above and less below wouldn't hurt.

    Thanks everyone for viewing and commenting. Your suggestion regarding moving the bird lower are well taken and applied. Here is a edit and repost.

    Comp-wise I think somewhere between the two would work best. Otherwise lovely image and feeding pose.

    hi Joe a very nice frame , love the feeding action and specially that little sand pile in front of the beak as it is adding a lot of context for me .
    processing does look very nice .

    love it and tfs Andreas
