[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A couple of sandpipers forage for food at low tide.

The sandpipers are a large family of waders or shorebirds. They include many species called sandpipers, as well as those called by names such as curlew and snipe. The majority of these species eat small invertebrates picked out of the mud or soil. Different lengths of bills enable different species to feed in the same habitat, particularly on the coast, without direct competition for food.

Nice capture here Yves.
I like how you have managed to achieve sharpness in both of your subjects, while also capturing both of their reflections. Great symmetry in this shot. Thanks for sharing.

Hallo Yves
Lovely to see these birds in their natural surrounding and habitat. The natural colours in this image is great and I very much like the way the water and land is seperated. Another great point I like here is the reflection in the water of both the birds and also how they are not facing one another. I have this "thing" for natural sunlight in an image and yours has got just that. It is a lovely, natural image with no pretence and seen just as it is supposed to be. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
