My favorite, maybe because it's the closest? :D
The morning was dark, bright, cloudy, drizzle, back to blue back to grey! :?

Anyway, still all worked out!

Anyone know what this one is? I thought a Piping Plover but where is the stripe?

The first one is my favorite also. The pose is superb. I guess the lighting could be better but like you said still all worked out.

I have no clue but when I shot it I thought it was a Piping Plover. Now that I see it on screen I just don't know! :?

Love the first 2 the lack of contrast of the body to the sky would seem to wash out the picture but the black head and wing tips along with the orange feet make the bird pop out of the surroundings.
The others are not "Chopped Liver" but I really like the turns

All nice shots, George! I especially like the terns. You've put me in mind to give the local black terns a try. I don't know what the last one is either.

These are lovely, George. The first one was a real grabber for me.....you captured it perfectly. I love photographing birds as I find them quite challenging. Looking forward to more of your posts.

George,

You spent your time very well. We need to have a shootout between you and Jim F. You are both posting at the absolute top level. :wink:

No way Jose, what do I look like a dummie! Jim is too good, anyway I'm a lover not a fighter! 8)

ps: The little white birdie above I am now pretty sure is a Least Tern Juvenile!

Thanks again for the kind words...a few more from the same day again all D2x, 200-400VR;

Jumping right on the band-wagon, Numero Uno is, well, Numero Uno :wink: .

I, personally, think the grey really makes it, very surreal and soothing.

You are also making my "should I D2X or not" even more difficult......
