This is a fine shot but, like many of your postings, I think it would benefit from a little processing before posting - see workshop for a suggestion. This bird (and your previous posting) is a whimbrel rather than a curlew - a more compact bird, shorter bill with a less even curve than curlew, dark stripe above the eye, other plumage characteristics.
Best wishes,

Hallo Zeno,
Niet goed gekeken bij de vorige foto, maar het is inderdaad een WULP. Mooie foto in natuurlijke kleuren en prima scherpte. Wat extra contrast is mogelijk. Genomen vanuit een goed laag standpunt.

Bonsoir Zeno,
Agréable publication sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

I think the way to make your compositions is very personal, has a "soft" style that I like, I photograph everything has a way of working, and yours is very nice. Congratulations, Zeno!
A big hug.

Hello Zeno,
A great capture of this beautiful Whimbrel. I really like the low POV and great eye contact. Attractive camouflaged plumage and displaying nice detail and just the right amount of exposure. Well done!!

A wonderful soft pic of this curlew. Well done - like it.
