Dear Derek,
Wonderful reflection of this beautiful bird, and I add your photo to my theme "Animals feeding, part two" .
the details are sharp, the colours luminant, and the background adds interest to the image

Thanks for sharing.

Great picture and fantastic reflextion on the water!!Congratulation and thank you for sharing it. Saludos

Hi Derek,

The reflections on the water are making the charm of the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the Greater Yellowlegs. The good luminosity is bringing out the neauty of the colours. Have a nice day.


Dear Derek,
The mirror effect is beautifully captured, I also liked the bokeh..even though it is distracting.tfs
