Is the title the name of this bird? Cute, and a great shot (with shadow)!

Great detail, angle, composition, tones and textures! It's funny how her (his?) little legs turn inward.

I'm not sure what part is ruddy, but that is a GREAT photo with the shadow and the angle.

Super catch. Did you watch the forage and actually turn small rocks over? MB

He looks as if he allowed you to get quite close Jose. On some beachs they get quite used to people walking past. Great shots.

For some reason the image would not show for me last night. I like the simplicity of this shot, and the reminder of the beach.

A pigeon-toed ruddy! Hmm... I suspect pigeons have the same in-turned feet and that's where the expression came from. What a clear shot. I like the angle, the shadow and the contrast with the light ground.
