The Avocet (recurvirostra avosetta)

This bird is a first for me and was captured during a recent visit to Pensthorpe NR. A dainty and delicate and quite beautiful bird.
I hope you will like him.
Most grateful and appreciative for all the generous c/c's for the Hobby and particular thanks to Brian for the generous UA.

Stunning detail in the Avocet Ron and like what you have done with the foreground with the shells in focus. Must ask how you do the boarder and frame around your pictures to make them stand out, just having a go at PSE but have loads to learn.. All the best BobSmile
