[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is a photo of a flock of Sandpipers on the Oregon Coast near Astoria. I took quite a few photos of these little birds. I was quite taken by their ability to "sense" what the movement of the group would be....they flew in formation with perfect timing, they stayed close together as they hunted for food....quite a wonderful little community of birds.

Hello Bettina,

Great repetition effect, of course!
But maybe you miss a strong focal point, as I cannot see any of the birds are pin sharp...
However, I never discourage newcomers with low ratings... But you should do better next time!

Welcome to TrekNature... keep posting and have fun!
