A pair of black Oystercatchers going for a stroll along Pauanui beach in the Coromandel. I think I will have to stop taking photos of birds I really don't have the time to find out what they are

No, you should not stop taking photos of birds! :-)
This is very sharp and well composed, with good light conditions.

Hi Jack
Simple and original view
Beautiful birds, excellent POV and BG
thank for this shot

Perfectly synchronized :) I had no idea these were oystercatchers. Great portrait!

This shot clearly shows you shouldn't stop shooting (not literally) birds =)


Great capture of the "dancing birds" ; I thought they are dancing at the moment : )Well done!

Cute cheeky bird photo Jack, it sure is time consuming finding out animal and plant species :-)

Love the colours Jack. Nice composed and fine detail. Do what I did, buy a book of local birds. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Clearing Fog’

Hi Jack
They are marching like in the army. Your birdies have beautiful red beaks.

Good shot Jack!
I miss Coromandel so much. Probably my most liked place in NZ.
In Pauanui for example I had pleasure to stay last Christmas ...
