What a beautiful picture and note. Fragility of life, that's what comes to my mind when I look and "read" your pic. Thanks for the very informative note, and for the emotions.

Stunning capture (and a sad story). You really put the little chap in the spotlike catching him like this ;-))
I sure hope you succeed in preserving these cute little critters!

Excellent image of a bird in its enviroment. Well done for keeping the feather detail in and not burning out the highlights.

Hi Lesley, this image is very attractive yet moody as well. The plover is well set in this beauty of tones. One may say, N.Geographic.
It would be nice if you could check out some of my work. Your critique would be helpful for future shots. Thanks.

Good composition and lovely story Lesley, good to know people still care.
The emptiness of the BG adds to the drama, positioning of the 'peep' is just perfect.

Great shot Lesley. Your composition, combined with your note is very powerful and successful. It is sad what we as humans have achieved as well, and that is to wipe out a lot of species from extinction.
The sharpness and exposure here is good as well.
Very well done and thanks for posting

I like this one very much, Lesley.
"...isolation and desperation with a pinch of hope came to mind for me." You possess this big quality that is empathy.
Thank for sharing pictures and so great notes too.

Fantatic balance of light and dark, detail and blur. The light is managed very well, shining nicely on this lovely peep. Your note is excellent, and hopefully he will not be alone for long. Well done.
