This is really a perfect exposure very well taken. The natural colors of the environment really draw you into to this winner of a photo. :)

The eggs are really very well camouflaged aren't they? I am always amazed at how exposed these nests are. I like how you photo shows that vulnerability. The color and focus on the plover are really good.

You have got it right in the middle of its natural habitat, Steve.
The birds sits quite relaxed on the pebbles. This is a great candid shot.
Well done and TFS.

Wonderful shot of this nesting bird with sharp details and nice colours. I like the natural surrounding and the coloured pebbles which forms a fabulous BG. Superb lighting and a fine pose captured with a low POV. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

I am always amazed at plovers and killdeer and the ilk ,that ground nest in this manner.
The theatrics they go through to lead you away from the clutch is entertaining to say the least.
Well captured,the plumage detail is excellent,the colours are deep and well saturated.
Very good eye contact.
