Lovely, Dave. The foam from the wave is just perfect and you had some lovely light on the Curlew.

Superb light and shooting angle.

Nice timing with the stride, David. I’ve only seen one of these in Gulfport several years ago. Except for the bill, they could easily be mistaken for the Marbled Godwit.
