Maybe not an uncommon bird, but I had fun trying to get this photo. I was only about 10 feet away from it and was lying down to shoot it straight on...good thing it was high tide so the beach was quite dry.
Wow, what a fantastic shot!!!! Very pleasing to the eye in many many ways. That photo belongs on a calendar spanning two or three months!!! ;D
Thanks for sharing.
Getting down to the subject's level is so effective as proven here. It can also be a great way to soak gear...the closest Ive come is elbows and half way to the wrists when my balance took a brief holiday. YIKES!
