The Solitary Sandpiper is commonly seen in migration along the banks of ponds and creeks. While not truly solitary, it does not migrate in large flocks the way other shorebirds do.

This photo was taken in something like a junkyard

Good job!
Dave
ps a note would be nice...;-(

Une autre belle image!

Bon focus bonne exposition, belle compositon. La réflexion est très belle et la plante de gauche reproduit la forme de la fleur de lys du Québec.
Belle réussite.

Claude bonjour, magnifique tableau!! Les reflets de l'oiseau et de l'herbe sont du plus bel effet. Les teintes sont douces et la composition est parfaite. Félicitations didier.

Hi Claude

A quick critique tonight as it is getting late. Lovely shot. Good POV and very well composed. Nice colours. Sharpness and detail is spot on. Awesome reflection. Thanks.

Two thumbs up! - Radu Xplorator

The superb reflections and dark background makes this shot so good. The poor details are a nit but overall I like this image a lot. Thanks for sharing!

Une photo exquise que voici, Claude! Une composition impeccable. Je l'aurais probablement tournée d'au moins un dedré dans le sens contraire des aiguilles d'une montre pour satisfaire mon regard mathématique mais j'aime trop les oiseaux pour vous faire le moindre reproche.
Un travail soigné. Merci.

Une photo presque trop belle !
tout est parfait ... reflet, couleurs, posture du sujet, Bravo !

Bonjour Claude,
J'aime beaucoup votre photo. L'ambiance et la lumière sont magnifiques. La composition est superbe. J'aime aussi la réflexion dans l'eau. Et les brins d'herbe en forme de fleur de lys en prime!
Félicitations et merci!
