A nice little guy ! You captured him well ! i like the blank stare composition here! how on earth do you get these perfect pictures? lol i made a banner out of your pic, come see! so lovely how the patterns in the water match the patterns in the feathers. nice and the background really looks cool and add to the beauty! One of my favorite pass-times on a beach is to watch the birds. They’re so industrious. lovely fellow, whatever he is sweet 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
