Great looking birds, Chris, with their orange beaks, pink legs, and black feathers. The contrast is very stunning. Good composition. TFS. : )

Chris, This duo is very striking in appearance with their bright orange eyes & bills on black..Good details and exposure. Great shot!
Ours are the second most threathend shorebird in SA, we call them Black Oytercatchers, and their feet and bill are bright red. very nice picture of them here where they live.
As for hides, I jave no picture of one - can you believe it? Next time I go to Marievale, I will try and get a picture of the inside. Basically, it is a timber shed, with hardboad louvres, or none, and you have this slot where you can look through on to the water.

Chris, I know that it's always difficul to get these black feathers a right exposure. Anyway, I think you did great here.
The contrast is nice, as well as composition.
