Hello Carl,
What a wonderful image of this attractive Upland Sandpiper. Posed perfectly on the fence post while showing us it's beautiful plumage and unique body features in excellent detail and natural color. Great eye contact and nice blurred BG. Well done!!

great portrait, I would have excluded the lower wire, TFS Ori
