Superb shot, Dave . Taken from down at its eye-level. The sand runs into the sky. Everything works with this photo !

A couple more from yesterday. Still not sure what these sandpipers are. I think maybe Semipalmated. Hope I get in close like this again one day. :)

Bird ID if any happen to know. Eastern appalachians, approx 2000 feet elevation.
Bird was no more than 3 inches long. I feel it is a juvenile of some kind.
I was in the backyard feeding the haws and this little one landed 6 feet away and begged
for a portrait.

Not a best photo.
I was out for some fresh air and a Kookaburra landed on gate nearby.
There were two large ducks in paddock behind I was interested in, but I got diverted

Good shots. I'm open to correction, but it's Western for me. That bill is too long for Semipalmated and those strongly rufous tones also favour Western. (Semipalmated is always a rather greyer bird, even when showing some rufous.)


Canon 7D2 · 50 f/1.8 · 17-55 f/2.8 IS · 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM · 100 f/2.8 Macro · 100-400 L IS II
Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.
