Black Turnstones

  1. I found a small group of Black Turnstones along the shores of Willapa Bay on the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington a few weeks ago. The Jolly Rogers Oyster Farm is a place where you can usually find something going on since they have large piles of oyster shells which attract all sorts of shorebirds.

    Hi Louis. #2 for me too. Highlights in the reflections are a bit distracting in the other images.
  6. Louie, you are so good at capturing interesting birds and doing so with perfect focus, fine detail, and good color. Way to go.
  7. Thanks very much Karen. Know what you mean about them not being very colorful.
  8. These guys are a tough shoot, they are small and quick, well done!
  9. Good ones - I like 1 the best.
  10. Thanks Bob.

    Thanks Nick.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment such as you have, appreciate it.

    thanks very much Gordon.
  11. Louie - I agree with Karen; all the shots are nice number two is such a terrific shot with the bird sharp and in focus against the water. That one really pops. As usual, thanks for posting.
  12. Thanks Andreas.

    Thanks Allan.

    Most appreciate your comments, thank you very much.
