Bluethroat and Little ringed Plover
Posted By: ToXiQ, 04-06-2008, 09:26 AM

hello All,

I was busy last week but I found some time to go out last days. Here my first Bluethroat from this year.

and the Little ringed Plover in the rain, you see the waterdrop rings in the first photo.

regards Walter

Walter, I don't know how you do it, but EVERY bird shot I've seen of yours are simply amazing. I'm just in awe of that second Bluethroat shot. That one belongs in a museum!

You are a birdman without a doubt - not sure I have ever seen perfection but those shots would be a good as any definition. Well done.
