Photographed on Long Island in the morning. It looks as if the Oystercatcher read the rip current warning and found the surf in the background pretty impressive. :)

Axel, The photo almost looks like the bird is in the midst of an apocalypse. Nice low angle and the colors throughout are terrific. On my monitor, could see increasing the exposure around the neck a tad.

Fine image- Axel. The water colours and patterns, are what makes this photo so special, in my opinion.

The light, action, and low angle all contribute to this great pic!
