[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a different juvenile avocet than the one I posted earlier. This chick located in the pond adjacent to the other one. It was amazing watching him feeding with his parents. I was really surprised that when he needed to relieve himself, he always go up to the dried areas. Never once, he made any droppings in the areas where he hunts. Amazing!

Hello Binh
This is cute beyond belief...The low pov is just right...The details are so sharp and the pose of this Juvenile Avocet is really unique.
Superb Capture

Hi Binh. A ver fine close up of this cute looking little young Avocet. very good detail with it cleaning its feathers.good rich but still natural looking colours. with a good POV/DOF. well done TFS.


Another excellent shot. I've never seen this bird, either grown on juvenile however, this picture shows it beautifully. Your low-level POV works really well here. I like the pose, composition and overall presentation. Thanks for sharing.

Best Regards,


Hi Binh
What a little cutie!
A nice portrait of a Avocet. The colours are all so bright and beautiful. Nice sharp details and lighting. Well done.
