Great looking addition to your series of birds from the Long Island coastal area. Beautiful details and timing of the completed downstroke.

Another one of your excellent in-flight shorebird images, Axel; great wing position captured here, plus the orange eye and bill certainly make for
a photogenic subject, as well.

Perfectly executed with the light angle, full downstroke and a very nice background.
