I really like your shots, ISv, the first one for the short DOF, and the second one, for this little wave ending up on the bird's feet.
Thanks Click! I don't like that much the second photo - from ~7meters for the Rudy Turnstone I had to shoot from ~11 meters for the Plover.
Very hot (especially above the sand) and humid day and these additional meters started eating from the detal.

The Little Stint is only 12-14cm long and it was ~80m away. As I wrote, the shot was just for the record - upscaled from a couple of hundred pixels to display it. If you want some high resolution ones, here is a Pectoral Sandpiper and a Ringed Plover that I got when I went back a couple of days ago and they came much closer to about 20m. RF + 100-500 @ 1000mm.

I'm jealous for the Ringed Plover! Nice photo of cute bird.

Can somebody tell me what happened to this website? Each time I want to like a post, now I have to confirm this action in a new window. This is pretty annoying.
It’s not happening to me. i have had problems with Firefox with all sites. Have you tried a different browser?

    I use Firefox all the time, no issues and no problems in liking. Not as @Cog describes. Strange.

    I think I posted (?) a photo of the Brown Booby in fly in the past - not very sure. Thanks for the comment!
    Here are some old (February 2020) photos of Brown Booby (PP with DxO - the Prime Noise reduction made a visible difference!). IExif says 133.5 meters but it says the same even if I shoot mile away:). The white bird on the second photo is Red-footed Booby. They do have dark form but that form has brown belly and keeps the character of the face (multi-) colors.

    It started today and is still on as I'm writing. I didn't install or update anything these days. I emailed the admins about the issue. Hope it will be fixed soon.
    I have the same problems on my Mac and Windows machines, but I found out, how to avoid the behavior. Instead of clicking on the word "Like", I just hover it and click on an emoji. Then the confirmation page doesn't show up.
    I have another problem with the site for some days. When an alert is shown in the top right corner, it used to overlay the page with a list of all alerts. Now the page is left and a new page with alerts is loaded. The alert overlay behaviour is lost.

    Nice getting them together. The long distance helps getting them all in focus.

    Very nice control of the white. It's not always easy with dark and white birds. Nice shots, ISv.

    Yes, the hovering technique works! Thanks a lot!

    The ads on this website are super aggressive. The space available for text and photos is shrinking and shrinking. Once I open a new page, I have ad windows in every corner and have to close them first to be able to see the text.
