Shorebirds

 

California, 1971 - a long-legged wader, Common Greenshank, I think, and a short-legged wader, possibly a Turnstone.

Little and Large. The one with the longer legs can go in deeper before that "oooahhh" moment.
Tom Wilson: That explains the aloof express ion of the Greenshank
You are getting some fine silly comments today Tom so I will resist
Tom Wilson: Oh, have a go, Bill - I'm sure you can out-silly the rest smile
David and Goliath...Great capture Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.
I like how the frame shadow gives movement to the birds walking in the direction of the viewer's left.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Jacquelyn - it's an easy thing to do in Elements.
Whoever said, "Birds of a feather stick together" has not seen this pair.
Tom Wilson: He, he! You got that right smile
lovely contrast between the two birdies, Tom. fine shot
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush.
This is a very good capture for all those years ago Tom, you must have had a half-decent camera.
Tom Wilson: It was a Ricoh SLR, Brian - by no means top of the range!
