Nice in flight freeze of this beauty in nice light. Nice choice of settings here Denis. Nice to have enough light to keep the depth of field and still have the shutter speed needed to freeze this guy.
Thanks for looking,
Michael Ashbee

Great flight shot of one of the best looking shorebirds, Denis.
I was in great company with you, Mike and your lovely woman on the other day, while shooting a rarity.
