Great colours here, good capture of its eye/legs and nicely reflected in the frame.

Hi Jack,
Good sharp capture of this little guy testing the water. Good composition too.
You would'nt believe it, but we saw some Oystercatchers in a field in the middle of Arthurs Pass last week. Maybe thier GPS was on the blink.

I like his bright red eyes and legs - good one Jack. They are cute characters, and I like seeing them try to lead you away from their nests hidden in the sand.
Well done

Hey,this i a great Oystercatcher shot Jack.
The exposure is great. You've managed to get feather detail and catchlight in the eye,both of which are tricky with these black birds.
This shot is so good it should be on Trek Nature.
Well done!

Hi Jack!
Marvelous colours of the bird.Very good shot!

Great focus in on the eye of the bird and stunning colours. Great stuff!
Thanks for sharing
