Since local beaches a bit busy on Memorial Day, figured I'd stop by Port Mahon on the Delaware Bay...

All with D90 and 300mm 2.8 on monopod

Whew, neat effect... The Turnstone is almost camoflauged.... I also like the low perspectives you did on the last and second one also...

Thank you.. Those Turnstones sure do blend in rather well while in their breeding plumage.. I got lucky and found a spot where I had a good vantage point and still was relatively hidden.. Though my feet did get a bit wet ;)

Nicely done Bill.
Were the red knot numbers any good. When we were there on Thursday (high tide) only saw 3.

These were the only two I saw.. It was taken about 4 hours after high tide.. I had heard it was best to catch them on the outgoing tide.. Didn't really see anything at the other area beaches as there were quite a few people out there with no birds...
