Hi,

Found some pictures form summer of a bar-tailed godwit (Limosa lapponica). I think it wasn't all Ok wit this bird, because I saw him on very crowded beach, and he didn't fly away - just kept distance :-) So I took bunch of pictures and then ralized that I had set ISO400 (really bad for my FZ20) so I set to ISO80 and took more pictures, untill finally the bird flew away. So I guess he wasn't that sick at all - maybe just tired.
Both pictures are cropped around 50%.
All comments appreciated!

Wonderful shots, especially the second. :!:

We have the bar-tailed Godwit in North America, I've never seen one, but it certainly looks like the "molting" Fall form.
