[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After his brief chase in my previous photo, this was the result. Little minnow.
Lately these dowitchers have been providing a lot of fun photographing them.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Doug, it was a good catch - for you and the Dowitcher bird. Well taken, and the reflections in the water are good too.

Excellent geometry, nice compo.

Hi Doug
nice catch with lovely circles on the water
although I am from Europe this looks like a Greater Yellowleg to me?

Hi Doug
Excellent photo of this dowitcher. Very good point of view and well exposed picture. I like the reflection of the bird in the water.
This picture also goes very well with the previous one that is excellent as well. Just presentation during hunting and after.
Thanks for sharing

Beautiful with the reflection, caught in just the right moment! A serene image! Bravo! Cheers, Klaus

This is an excellent action catch! A gone one for you and for him! What I like most are those beautiful tones of colors and exposure. Details and reflection are wonderful too. You also made a great composition. The texture of the water is beautiful too! Thanks,
