Fantastic portrait of the sandpiper in typical pose. The raised mound is such a photo friendly place for it to stand, normally should give a disturbance free BG like this. Superbly done.

Hello Christodoulos,
Very cute pose of this Wood Sanspiper, shown as usual in a perfect composition and with the best light. What an elegant and fine bird!
Kind regards

Hello Chris,
Hope you are doing fine. We are neighbours as far as our wood sandpiper photos go but after posting my photo, I did not have time to post comments to my friends photos. So I am here after almost twenty four hours.....sorry. But as they in English, it is never too late.
Chris, I often tell you that one thing that impresses me most about your photos, is their consistent high quality and this one is no exception, this is a classic shot. The focus, the details, the posture are all perfect.Cameras do matter and you are a fine photographer.
Thanks a lot for sharing....take care...warm regards/Abid

Giasou Christodoule
