 I was pleasantly surprised to see this plover considering the lack of birds on this particular beach. He did not stay around very long due to all the dogs on the beach, but you have to like dogs. :D

Really an image with delicate tones and shades, very beautiful the reflection so soft.

Beautiful eye level view of this sweet little featherball in its dreamy blue surroundings, John.  Excellent image! 

Sorry the dogs spooked your shorebirds, but I have to admit I do love dogs (just collected my latest rescue dog today) its the owners who don't keep them under control that I can't stand!  :)

Great low angle, light and fluffed-up pose.

the soft looking image is well exposed and nicely done for the angle as-well, good stuff JOHN.

Excellent lighting, colours, perspective, detail, all shown in your image, John,-dogs are wonderful, except when they scare away the birds !

Gorgeous!!! Love the sweet light, the still water, fluffed up pose. Love the composition including the reflection.
