Waders!

There are currently some great opportunities for photographing migrant waders here in Shetland. I particularly enjoyed photographing the Ringed Plover with a 'moving carpet' of sand in a mini sand-storm! A juvenile Little Stint at the same site was also a nice subject to photograph.

I have to say im not a great admirer of wildlife photography, but some of your captures are amazing. This one for me is my favourite. Beautiful.
