Default A Few Shorebirds

FZ150 and TCON-17. And probably a tripod although the camera is coming off and on it constantly as I move about.

Steve, these don't look as clear as some of your other shots, or my eyes are getting worse, lol.

Thanks Alex and Eysha. These might not be crystal clear sharp, but sometimes I have to take what I can get. That big plover is a shy and rare bird, and these were taken in bright middday sun, which is not my preferred time.

Here is a shot of the plover taken in the rain. Not as sparkly but I think it turned out better.

Great series Steve and some excellent shots in hard conditions, but that additional shot is remarkable. Rain or not its a great snap!

Actually, I'm retired, and go for walks every day, usually along the lake.
