[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Black Turnstone (Arenaria melanocephala) is a year-round resident on this stretch of Puget Sound. When the tide is high there is no beach and shore birds hang out on the old ferry dock (Harper Fishing Pier). (Harper is near Port Orchard.)

This picture was cropped from the original and shot using automatic settings (and auto-focus).

Hi M M Cromarty

Very nice grouping of those Arenaria melanocephala, a species that we don't have here in Québec.
Nicely done and welcome in the family.

Hello MM, and welcome to TN.
A wonderful first post of these attractive Turns. Too bad only one would cooperate with you and face the camera, but you managed to get a great shot all the same.
Very good detail and exposure along with beautiful natural colors. I really like the overall quality of the photo. Well done!!

Ciao M M and welcome. We can appreciate very good DOF here and excellent
details in difficult light's condition.
