[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the most seen little polvers in the Camargue were kentish plover, a species that is rather rare and difficult to find and shoot in The Netherlands. Not so in the Camargue. This little guy was posing, maybe to draw my attention away from the chicks that were supposedly in the area

A delightful close portrait Jeroen with a top technical standard.
The Kentish Plover was an occasional breeder in Skåne and one has been observed for some time in Ottenby, but I would have to travel to Mallorca to hope to take a picture like this!
Thanks and enjoy your weekend,

Hello Jeroen
Very harmonious colours suitable for this delicately coloured bird.
Excellent detail, good pose and eye contact.
A superb portrait.

Hello Jeroen,

Beautiful portrait image of this plover. The pastel/earthen colors are lovely & illustrate just how well this species blends with it's environment. Sharp focus and a perfect pov make this composition a pleasure to the eye!

Hi Jeroen,

Very nice capture of this Kentish plover, it is not easy to put in a box.
It is quite nervous and his movements are very numerous, but you is reached.
Excellent texture of plumage and fast speed image is sharp.
Thank you for sharing
My best regards.

Hello Jeroen,
A very nice photo with a lovely bird. The clarity, focus and blurrry background are great.
Have a nice weekend!
