    Just love to walk along the sea and see the shore birds. This dowitcher was in the water and then came out a little. I really like the second shot with the dried up seaweed etc.

    Both shots are great as the first one shows the birds plumage off to perfection. The second photograph lets you see how easily the bird could camouflage itself if danger lurked.

    Yes, I agree with Eileen! Could so easily hunch down and not be seen.
    Great shots

    Excellent representation of the birds and the environment that they live and feed in.

    Yes, I like how it's legs look like some of the dried seaweed.
