  1. What a beautiful way to celebrate the world wetland day! I love both the composition with the egrets and sandpipers, and the little guy resting on the pole ❤

  2. Beautiful images of the birds by the water, Takami. Love how you framed the second shot. It almost looks like the bird is standing around snow. Great work. Hope you are doing well over there 🙂

    • Thank you Mabel. I am pleased you enjoyed some views of our waders, and especially glad you liked the second one. He was a charming little fellow and was “destined” to take center stage 🙂 We are staying safe here, and hope it is the same for you and your dear ones too.

      • I like how you said the second charming little fellow seemed destined to take center stage. He does look like he likes the limelight. Hope you get to see him again one day 🙂 We are safe and well over here. Take care and looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    • Thank you Ash! This little guy really made us smile and I was waiting for the right time to feature him on a post. Our nature centers are also commemorating World Wetlands Day this weekend.

      Sadly, we’ll refrain from travelling, but will look forward to the next mini-birding adventure. We also hope you are enjoying your weekend!

    • Thank you Jolandi! I wanted to show our our actions as a species affects both “groups” of birds and birds at an individual level. The lone sandpiper really did radiate an aura of serenity and I am happy you could feel it too 🙂

    • Hello Dries!
      Thank you for your visit and message! I am glad you loved the little “plump” sandpiper 🙂 My husband and I both agree he had a very pleasant “roundness” and looked quite content 😀

      We are doing OK, and taking it one day at a time during the ongoing pandemic. We hope you and your wonderful family are doing well. Your photos are always a highlight to my day!

    • Hello Mr. Hien,
      I appreciate your warm words, and am glad you noticed the little common sandpiper. They are considered quite “common” among shorebirds here and a more subdued than the other shorebirds. However, I love their subdued and refined beauty, and this bird was very beautiful and didn’t mind the camera 🙂
