CommentThere is nothing quite like the breeding colours of the migratory waders that visit Australia. I have included this image because this breeding plumage colour transformation shown in this image exemplifies this. I also like the low angle, the typical awareness pose of this species, the clarity and background bokeh in this image.
EquipmentNikon D500, Nikon 500 F5.6 PF exposed at 1/1600th sec, f5.6 and ISO 250
LocationLady Elliot Island, Queensland
