    Default Caught the Oystercatcher!

    These guys have been haunting me for awhile! They've given me some chances before, but usually stayed too far off.

    Today, this guy decided to cooperate!

    Hopefully I'll get more opportunities like this.










    Thanks for looking!

    Oystercatcher? That's a new one on me. It looks a little like what we call a "Mile-or-More".

    Great captures.

    Nice shots indeed. I saw these in New Zealand a couple of years ago. Funny the way they walk way around you on the beach.
