Beautiful capture.I liked POV,pose of bird,framing and composition are excellent.
Thanks for posting.
Wonderful action shot of a Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres)in winter plumage. Great freeze as he is about to hop down taken with technical and esthetic excellence.
Well done and thanks,
Have a good weekend,
Excellent capture of this wader that looks to me like (Ruddy) Turnstone which is the same as in Europe. Some of them are wintering as far as Namibia. Looks that Ivan came to the same conclusion just moments before. You have great POV and composition, nice pose about to jump, pin sharp details and great natural colours.

Hello Annick, my neighbour
nice to see another great capture of yours. You captured this beautiful wader bird with wonderful POV, focus, composition with rock. Plain BG, eyes contact and of course frame great. This bird is one of my dream species. Nice to see it from your lens. Thanks for sharing, best wishes

Thanks for sharing. Best regards. Ferran
Great pose and excellent isolation here. A really lovely composition.
I actually knew it was a turnstone - not the exact species though (I am not a bird specialist).

Another beautiful image from Namibia, leaving the ID to experts, the image is perfectly composed with the sea as background which connects the bird to its environment. what I liked here is the shape of the bird and details. It also looks like ready to plunge in to the waters or curiously reading your notes. tfs.

Catchy title with the image captured so beautiful. The perch at the tip of the rock like it is going to slide down is amazing. Tact sharp focus and very well silenced background. I like it and best regards,

I was looking at this shot thinking that your bird looked like a Turnstone, then read your note.(photographed one very similar on a wharf at the mouth of the Grey River recently.)
Those wading birds sure get around.

Nice posture Annick
Quality as usual
the large emptiness at the right and top affords a quite special atmosphere (maybe a little too large though)

Excellent close view of this Turnstone showing its lovely markings and colours.
Nice pose at the edge of the rock too and a fine composition.
TFS and regards, Ulla

superbs clarity and excellent moment of capture.A very convincing andi mpressive positioning of the bird at the corner lot.
Well expressed and beautifully emphasiszed. I like the serious face of about to dive there.
