it is fairly obvious from your exif that you know what you are doing and we all know how Oyster Catchers cans be a tad flighty. It must have been ridiculously bright here to warrant -EC of 2 1/3 so very well done for not blowing the highlights.

however personally i wonder whether the image would perhaps have benefitted from an off-centre composition (see example)

I can never get within 200yards of these beautiful shore huggers. A great capture.

thanks, Phil...am uploading the original which had a fair amount of scope for size...did think about the comp...maybe you're right Smile

I know it's not the sharpest...quite a bit of handshake I suspect (should have taken my mmonopod)...but they rarely give you more than about 20yds before they're away with that loud shriek GrinGrin

V3 for the bird being slightly off centre and lesser b/g works very well - great shot
