I like the simple composition here , the feathers blowing in the wind and the details are amazing in this picture. 1500 nos… ooof , its highly endangered , hope it will survive the test of time and human onslaught.

Beautiful this shot of the dottorel.
I like a lot the ilumination, with the shadow projected, but there is still enought light to iluminate the head and the eye of the bird.
DOF makes the sand get OOF slowly...
I like the composition also,
Congratulations and thanks for share,

Fine capture of this rare wader. One hopes that the conservation measures taken are sufficient to protect the species.
You present this dotterel in a sharp, well composed shot, the side light making it interesting not only photographically but showing the purpose of the ruffled feathers to take up the warmth of the morning sun.
TFs, best wishaes, Ivan

What a sad story... I hope that the authorities in your country have a plan to help this fragile specie. This is a very nice capture of this bird with excellent details, POV and DOF. I like its fluffy feathers a lot. Thanks,

A very nice and warm picture of this threatened bird. Again an example of the destroying nature of us people.
Let's hope for the future that there is more space for thid beuatiful creatures. TFS.

Hi Pam, another quality shot. Great low POV bringing us eye level with this Dotterel. Excellent lighting, details and good natural colours. The sharpness and DOF is spot on. Fist class work, TFS and have a great Christmas.

Wow, Pam. You sure managed a close-up shot of this shorebird, which I imagine has a tendency to scamper quickly away at human approach. I have a very hard time catching the sandpipers-type birds on our beaches. They move so fast.
Great POV of him looking out at sea.
Sharp details presented in perfect light.
TFS. : )

Otra primorosa captura Pam con bello punto de vista, mostrando no sólo la silueta del ave con total claridad, agudeza y colorido, sino también su sombra que colabora con la estética de la composición.
Me agrada el marco elegido y el recorte de la misma.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo
Another dainty capture Pam with beautiful point of view, not only showing the silhouette of the bird with total clarity, sharpness and coloring, but also their shade that collaborates with the aesthetics of the composition.
I like the elected frame and the cropping of the same one.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

What a beautiful fluffy little bird. It looks like he is trying to warm up and get dry again. Compositional wise, this is really beautiful. Your low POV worked really wel. Superb sharpness and colors. You even managed to catch a little reflection in the eye.
