hi Jose
Impressive details, interesting bird.
The extender really works. Well done.


That's a fine photograph, but the bird is Charadrius dubius, the Little Ringed Plover. The yellow eye-ring and dark bill are diagnostic features, and the pattern of black and white on the head and breast are also different to C. hiaticula.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hello Jose,
Your pretty little Plover is tac sharp from head to toe and I absolutely adore it's bright yellow eye ring. Taken from an attractive low POV while obtaining perfect exposure. Colors are well saturated and natural. Overall an awesome presentation!

Hi, using Halsey. A lovely photograph which is so sharp and with good natural colors and surroundings. Composition and depth of field is right on. I am amazed that you got a good one from the car. Thanks very much for sharing.

Sharp; good DOF.

once more great quality pic of a wonderful bird. Thanks for showing

Hello Jose,

Very beautiful picture of this Plover in its natural habitat. It's so thrilling to see such wild species in its natural habitat roaming freely. I always like such picture.
Natural color and splendid light made it an attractive picture. Small grasses here and there and touch of yellowish flower have added an eye catching appeal in it.

Thanks for sharing,

Ciao Jose, great capture of lovely bird in nice pose, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
