[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went down to Stanpit Marsh this evening after Phaynes told me what a good sunset he had witnessed the night before. There was an abundance of wildfowl there and the locals seem to be doing their bit to encourage them to breed. Altough the light was fading fast I managed to get this shot of the Curlew out feeding on its own.

Hi Jai,

Very unconventional but working composition. Good lighting, colours and sharp details.

Thanks for sharing


I saw this before bed and had run low on fuel. This is a fine bird and only seen a few times in 100 years near my mountain wildernesses of Curlew Washington. The Native Americans named curlew after this bird, but when white men settled in the mountains, they slowly disappeared. A fine capture Jai! TFS and please do not be discouraged. This is a rare capture for my eyes...keep on taking pics and posting. I look forward!

PERFECT camouflage!!!
Did you notice it???
