Variable Oyster Catchers
Lovely shot, nice and sharp, which I have found is hard with these birds. There seems to be something about them being all black that somehow makes it hard to get a good focus on??? I have a sharp one myself but I have heaps that arent quite as sharp as I'd like. anyway, a lovey shot tfs.

I have seen oyster catchers but ours wear jeans and carry shovels:-) Never once have I seen a bid catch an oyster...nice that you were able to get in so closely and also good that you handled the hard black with good technicality!

I've been trying to catch up with TN lately and as I was suspecting there's not that many "old" TNers still here. I'm very happy to see you still going strong ;-)
The picture is very good, I especially like the POV and colours. The DOF is spot on and so is the exposure.
VERY WELL DONE!

Janice, this is a very beautiful picture of these interesting birds.
I like their almost synchronized pose on the beach -- their natural habitat.
The image is excellent technically.
Well done and thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.

A very striking shot! The red beaks and red eyes of those birds really stand out! Your focusing and composition are great. A few times I've tried to take photos of birds that are quickly moving along a shore, and usually I've been disappointed with the results. Your capture turned out very well indeed. TFS.
By the way, I never did reply to your last note about using FlashEarth effectively. I'm glad that you were able to do that. I find it very useful to be able to check out an area and get lat/long coordinates.
