Hello Mario, very excellent detail seen on this Plover, right down to the mud seen on his beak. I like the textures seen here in the water, and the incredible sharp detail you've picked up on the bird itself, on the plumage and that great eye. Lighting and colour is excellent throughout.

Absolutley original a shot...the light shines its eyes and the body colours have turned a warm brown.I gues sit was busy looking for its food in the muddy bank and the beak coated with rich brown silt almost shines in the sunny glow.The colours, sharpness and contrast are absolutely wonderful...well done.
TFS & Cheers
