This is a shot I took at the same time as the boat I posted recently. I don't know what the bird is, but they certainly move fast. This was the best I could do. Any tips?

I am the 86th viewer and the first comment !
I like the harmonious tones of the background with the bird and the lighting.
About photographing moving targets, I can't help you effectively with tips, I have limited knowledge (almost nonexistent) in technical setting, but I guess that maybe you need to use the burst mode in this situation.

Bom dia Robert,
I really liked this shot that highlighted the brightness and sharpness.
The glitch timing in the legs is not enough to spoil the whole.
I think it is not worth trying to improve with publishers. The error should have been corrected in selecting the shooting mode. Perhaps the classic TV multi shot.

Hi Bob,
I really like the low PoV, the focus on the eye is nice and sharp and no problem with the slight blur on the legs, 1/60sec is probably a bit slow for something that's moving

Hi Bob,
It might be from the sandpiper group but I might be wrong and apologize if so. You do show good details and natural colors however the speed could have been pushed up somewhat to decrease the blurry movement. Overall a great capture.

Sharp where it needs to be on the eyes and beak, little bit of movement in the leg to add life and filling the frame. It all works for me ...

As for what bird it is ... it's one of those little brown and white birds that run along the beach!
