[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Dutch]
The Black-tailed Godwit, Limosa limosa, is a large, long-legged, long-billed shorebird first described by Carolus Linnaeus in 1758. It is a member of the Limosa genus, the godwits. There are three subspecies, all with orange head, neck and chest in breeding plumage and dull grey-brown winter coloration, and distinctive black and white wingbar at all times.

Its breeding range stretches from Iceland through Europe and areas of central Asia. Black-tailed Godwits spend winter in areas as diverse as Australia, western Europe and west Africa. The species breeds in fens, lake edges, damp meadows, moorlands and bogs and uses estuaries, swamps and floods in winter; it is more likely to be found inland and on freshwater than the similar Bar-tailed Godwit. The world population is estimated to be 634.000 to 805.000 birds and is classified as Near Threatened.

Hello Anne
Excellent capture!
Thanks for sharing

hallo Anne
Super mooie compositie om hem zo te laten zien
Goed van scherpte en super kleuren met veel details
Bedankt groetjes lou

Gorgeous shot Anne Marie Bokslag, despite the fact that the image looks a bit underexposed, or most probably it was taken under dark cloudy conditions. Nevertheless it is a great clean capture with amazing simplicity and elegance. Actually I think that your model deserve a praise here! Please have a look my workshop where I made some adjustments. Hope you like it Anne Marie!

Excelent is the word for this presentation. Color, light and composition are excelent. Congratulation.

Hi Anne Marie,

very good both for the composition and for the sharpness of details.Perfectly isolated from the BG, this bird stands out optimally from the green.I agree with mwmod99 -a bit underexposed- but i think it's still a great image.



Hi Anne Mariek,
What a wonderful capture for you. Great isolation of the bird against the green background. Nice feather details.

Hi Anne,

Excellent picture of this GODWIT in a nice pose. Very good POV & great sharpness. The green BG is stunning. Well done & TFS.
