Hi Russell,
Nicely composed shot of this little Banded Dotterel. I like Kathleens chick too.
I was very lucky to get quite a few very clear close up shots of one of these a year ago,and a good close up shot of its eggs.
nice work.

Hi Russell.
Beautiful light used, pin sharp with great colour and detail. Awesome shot. Can't wait to see your chick image.
Still having keyboard block I see, you did well to write up what you have, there is a link in my notes that I posted on my chick that will take people through to information on the Banded Dotterel.
Catch ya later

Hi Russel,
Nice shot!
Good colors and sharpness!

Beautiful sharp picture - the grasses give a sense of scale to the picture.

Hello Russell, a lovely shot of the Dotterel, very well composed. The Dotterel is nice and sharp, bathed in good light with wonderful colours throughout. Great pov.
