Thanks for the nominations - I really appreciate them.

I thought I HAD to submit a BIF, since BIFs are my major goal in photography. But picking just one for the contest was hard. I thought the sanderlings stood out among my favourites: With the number and the syncrony and catching them all in the focus plane (more or less), this was one that I was particularly fond of personally. But, I don't know. They are little grey birds after all, and in the company of more spectacular creatures in this contest, so it was a far shot.

But I am very happy that you two noticed them!
