    • Thank you Randall!
      Shorebirds/waders are often overlooked because their colors are subdued compared to the “glamour” birds. But they are really something and you never tire of watching them.
      This was also made at the bird sanctuary I mentioned during a previous conversation 🙂 Hope you are doing well.

    • Hello Atreyee,
      As always, thanks much for your visit and comment. I’m thrilled you enjoyed this moment with the dunlins. They are quite tiny (around 20cm) when alone, but really have a majestic presence when in-flight and in perfect coordination 🙂

      Best,
      Takami

  1. Takami, I am so grateful to learn a little about Dunlins and Sandpipers through your gifts as an artist who is able to convey the essence of the world’s beauty and wonder with such reverence through your exquisite photos.

    • Dear Carol,
      I greatly appreciate (and am very humbled) by your generous comments. Folks like you encourage me to keep up with the photography, and remind me to appreciate what’s around us and often can go unnoticed. So, thank you so much! ❤

    • Thank you Noelle!
      I agree, it’s incredible to see them in-flight at such close distances while not crashing into one another 🙂 These Dunlins are such tiny shorebirds (around 20 cm), but they look absolutely majestic in moments like this.

    • Thank you Mr. Matti!
      These Dunlins (ハマシギ in Japanese) are very small, about 20cm. But they look very majestic and powerful when in-flight together 🙂
      Best wishes to you and your beautiful family too.
