Piping Plover


While in Fort Myers last December, I found this Piping Plover. Since the bands, I wanted to report back to the bankers and this way I found out that it hatched in the Summer of 2017 in Michigan ( > Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore). I wrote a small blog on it as well: https://www.hansoverduin.nl/protecting-piping-plovers/.
Thanks for viewing !

Pertinent technical details or techniques to help others learn: Nikon D500 @ 500mm | 1/1600s | f5 | ISO125 | underexposed 2/3EV | me and camera on the beach!

Good job reporting it and a beautiful image, Hans.

great shot, wish I had one like it in my files.

Great image of this diminutive plover. I like how you have placed the plover in the frame, and the lighting and low angle make this very pleasant to view. Nice to get one with the band.

Excellent light, detail, depth of field and point of view. I enjoyed the story of the band. A well composed image.

Nice low point of view and excellent detail.
