    Default American Oystercatcher (Haematopus palliatus)

    I captured this image at Ft. DeSoto County Park in Pinellas County, Florida. Most of the image I have seen of American Oystercatchers have been from the side, this head on view show how slim the bill is (surprising to me) similar to a Razorbill. Comments and critique welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    Lovely low angle and the background surf is a lovely inclusion. Details/exposure look very good.
