Fairly uncommon in our local coastal area. Lighting was tough and it was at a distance. Need a 2XTC to pull it in.

Very sweet image, Terry. The dark background really isolates the Sandpiper well, and the reflection is near perfect.

Very close to perfection...no, IT IS perfection. What a fabulous image, Terry.
