[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These Whimbrels kept me a good 20 m away. we played a game of follow for a good half hour. I would crawl up to one side trying to corner them & they anticipating my moves would move in totally a different direction.
In all this time the only time i got close to one of them was accidentally & both of us were shocked to see each other so close , i lost the moment.
There were actually 3 birds feeding together in a line, very delightful to watch, also it was the first time i saw three Whimbrels together & kind of feding in tandem.
ISO 400 ( I dislike the graininess it causes)
Metering manual underexposed .

Hello Badruddin,
Excellent capture with great lighting and sharpness of these two Whimbrels. Nice composition too.
I thinkk the use of ISO 400 was much more positive than negative.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Badruddin,
the way you composed your picture is really to my favorite style. I like to see animals in the surroundings. The low point of view and no close cropping is an absolute plus in this image. Defenitly worth compliments.
