Sharp-tailed Sandpiper

Sharp-tailed Sandpiper (Image ID 44821)
CommentThe day was drizzly and overcast resulting in a pleasant muted high key colour throughout the frame. The feeding Sandpiper creates a reverse s curve vertically through the 'portrait' format. Whilst the head area is in focus the rest of the bird is softly rendered adding to the atmospheric feel of the overall picture. I was able to photograph this hand held from a relatively short distance from the window of the car. The sandpiper was able to go about feeding undisturbed.
