Good show, Lester! And then you had to brush the sand off your pants and shirt ;)

A lovely shot that's totally made by the perspective taken. Love how the colours in the surrounding area really make the birds black and white plumage stand out as well.

Great work Lester, that's one tough exposure and you handled it extremely well. Nicely framed with the rocks.

Thanks everyone so much.

Something had upset this bird, he kept up an load alarm call long before we walked past and was still going after we left!
