Once again, Steve, you set the standard for shore bird photography. Super job on these. I'm convinced you only shoot shore birds so you can lay down on the job. :)

Thanks very much everyone for the kind comments.

Mitch, if any bird could get close enough to see my camera settings it would be a Turnstone. They stay so busy sometimes they don't pay attention to where they are.

Pat, it would be a pleasure shooting with you. Let me know if you ever make it this way.

Harv, I've tried to mix it up over the years between the waders, shorebirds, raptors, Kingfishers, Pelicans, some songbirds etc. The shorebirds aren't a serious challenge for me but sometimes they can be the only game going and other times they pass by while I'm waiting on the larger birds. Laying down is good thing for a short while but hours of it really gets my lower back talkin'. Still worth it though.

Thanks very much Scott, Doctorh, Gail and Mike.

Gail, I'll eventually get to the book. I just have to stop shooting long enough to get it done.:)
