It's a lovely photo, isn't it?

Marc said...

I didn't immediately recognize them as being Arenaria intrepes, but if you say so JM :-) Nice shot though.

Ruddy turnstones are one of my favorite shorebirds. They have such intense coloration and are always busy scurrying somewhere.

Great shot, the birds dont seem to get scared by you and the camera, like the way the shadow from the fence is coming out.

Very nice play on shadows.

I've never seen such a bird. I suppose they're common to you?

Love your work with the shadows. Creates the mood around the birds.

JM said...

Yes, Boise Diva, there are hundreds of them along the shore.
