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

Today, this guy decided to cooperate!

Hopefully I'll get more opportunities like this.

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.

Yup very crisp eyes and beak in most of these. Nice captures
