I'm glad he posed for you. It gave you the chance to capture your usual perfect photo.
What perfect images! I had to smile at Andy's comment - I concur - your usual perfect photo. That describes you to a "T", Brian! I love the red ring on the eyes - gorgeous!
Stunning shots Brian. How I would love to see one of these in the UK.
I like the pattern in its plummage. Very pretty.
Lovely set of pics Brian, they are a smart wader.
Oh what fun little bird. I wonder if we have any of them here at the Jersey shore? We have a lot of protected nesting areas. I love the angles you were able to capture of this little bird. I know when I tried to get pictures of plovers I got lots of back side shots.
What a great set of shots - I'd like to see the broken wing display! Stewart MPS: 'see" you on wednesday!
How beautiful and majestic this bird is. You got a perfect shot.
they really are pretty shots. i like that - 'your usual perfect photo'. that should be your blog's byline. :)
One of my favorite birds, but not until I saw your dramatic photos did I know they wore orange eye shadow.
Great shots, Brian! I especially like the second one. I think you are hypnotizing all the birds and animals to get them to stand still so you can get those perfect shots! :0)
Killdeer are VERY difficult to photograph. From a distance, fine, but try to inch closer and they scurry away, extremely sensitive to noise. These are so spot on with the focus. I'm glad someone was able to get that close, too. Great seeing the orange detail in the eye and more of their markings. Love these!
Great capture!!!Very good images!!!
Hello, I really like your Plover picture, I managed to get a picture of a Little Ringed Plover on Sunday at our local Nature Park. It's on my post called Back to Hadyns Pool in case you want to see it. It's a bit blurry as it was quite far away. From Findlay
Great close ups!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Great close-up photos.
what a wonderful close up allowing us to see the great color/feather pattern!!
Brian, beautiful shots! They are pretty birds.
Outstanding captures, Brian. They usually scurry so fast its hard to get decent shots.
Great shots! I've had to deal with these on the playground with kids running to tell me there was an injured bird on the ground. Amazing how they can survive so many predators, including kids, with their nests on the ground!
Oh he's a beaut! Nice shot!
Really like the detail in that first shot. You did good capturing these guys, they can be really fast runners! Catching up in a short pause before heading home. Thanks for the comment on the whales, I have lots of fins and some tails, really about all you get, the out of the water shots are very hard to come by so I appreciate them even more now.
YOu did a wonderful job photographing this hard to capture bird. They're really pretty little birds.
Gorgeous shots of the beautiful little bird.
Great close ups of the Killdeer! Love the red eye ring!
That's a little beauty. So nice to have such a sharp pic...I remember as a kid wondering why they would name it that. Hahahhahaaa.
Fabulous markings. And good on you Brian to catch so many views of this little speedy gonzolas. I was just reading in an historical novel set in Scotland about how the plovers try to "fake" intruders away from their nests.
I've never seen one. How beautiful! Glad he let you get close enough.
I am amazed that these birds survive due to their nesting habits. How long did you have to lay on the ground to get these outstanding shots,Brian?:)
Perky and his eyes are so bright. Great capture based on their usual activity. :)
I've always thought the killdeer is a very special bird! You have captured him perfectly! What wonderfully sharp photos!
WOW! You got some GREAT shots! She/He posed nicely for you :)
Great shots Brian, We have them down the lane and have you seen their eggs? They look like large pebbles~
Stunning shots of the Killdeer! Your images are so clear and crisp.
