He's going about his business and to heck with you, Ed: good detail and he stands out well against the b/g.

Superb image Ed - nicely striding forth - such photogenic birds with all the red bits!
I saw some in the Outer Hebrides but wasn't clos enough to capture a good image.

A magnificent shot of this handsome Oyster Catcher Ed, my only critique would be the orientation of the image. May I suggest a horizontal flip allowing one to naturally follow the image..

Nice shot Ed.
Wish I could get this close to the pair around a local lake to me. Anything closer than 50 yds and they're off.

lovely shot Ed and the eye...brilliant but it is the 'stepping out'
that makes me smile

Lovely shot Ed. Cathy

It's an excellent ornithological image, with cracking good detail.
"Stepping Out", Ed?
That's an old-fashioned phrase.
Good to see your latest 'bird', although...
with those red eyes, it looks like the pair of you...
have just fallen out of the pub...Wink

Looks like he's marching Grin

Fantastic candid portraiture, Ed. The light, colour and focus are spot-on.
