From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
These birds are small waders, only slightly larger than Dunlin at 19.5–21 cm in length, but differ from Dunlin in having a longer down-curved bill, longer neck and legs and a white rump. The breeding adult has patterned dark grey upperparts and brick-red underparts. In winter, this bird is pale grey above and white below, and shows an obvious white supercilium. Juveniles have a grey and brown back, a white belly and a peach-coloured breast.

Hai Razvan,
Good pose of the sandpiper,with a very suitable background! what i feel is,you should have taken care of the DOF focussing on the subject that your looking for.
both the bird and the water backgroud have similar sharpness.you have concentrated more on the bird.anyways good work,

So this is a shot from last summer, Razvan. no wonder the light is so bright.
The image is very charming to look at. The details on the bird's feathers are excellent and the pool of water makes the appropriate BG.
Well done and TFS.

Ciao Wolf, great capture of lovely bird with fine details and wonderful sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Razvan,

A beautiful capture of this Sandpiper wading in the shallow water. He is wonderful with his lovely colored plumage and sharp details. The water makes a fascinating background. A beautiful setting and composition.
