Lesser Sand Plover, Charadius Mongolus

Smaller than Greater Sand Plover and different from Kentish Plover lacking white collar, this bird is seen on the coasts of subcontinent during winter season.
Picture was taken when the bird was standing amidst this lush green creeper with gorgeous lilac flowers.

Hi Smitha,
really charming to find the Sand Plover presented by you from a very low point of view, its head seemingly touching the open pinks blossoms behind it. Perfectly chosen depth of field well isolating the clearly and sharply focussed bird from its close by background. A well describing, lively and refreshing image. Thank you!
With best regards,

Hello Smitha

Beautiful photo of the Lesser Sand Plover, fine low POV
at the bird's level and excellent framing by leaving a good
free space in front, with beautiful light, TFS
