I don't know how I missed this, but it's a very good photo especially considering the distance.

Where is this? I thought sandpipers lived near oceans...

Hi Ted
thanks for the comment

this was taken at a large slough just N.E. of Calgary
these are lots of shore birds here if the lake or slough is big and shallow.
I have seen sand pipers along the river banks in Calgary

2x is pretty handy
think of the cheap and cheerful 45/1.8 as a fast 90mm, 180mm EFL

if this isnt the edge, its damn close to the edge
EM1 45/1.8 at 1.8, 1/100th, ISO 1600, -1/3 ev, and digital 2x



EM1, 45/1.8 at 1.8, 1/100th, ISO 2000, and digital 2x

Well said, and that goes for both Fred and Riley's shots.

digi-X2 on the E-M1 is outstanding, I use it quite a lot with all my lenses.
