CommentI have chosen this photo as it demonstrates the intense look of the two sandpipers as they search for food in shallow water. There is good clarity in the reflection, even the water droplet on the bird's beak can be seen. The second bird gives balance to the weeds and shows these birds are frequently in small groups rather than found singly.
