More Waders

A crab and a Terek Sandpiper

November 2 2010. Yesterday morning I went to search for more waders at the coastal mudflats of Batu Kawan area. It was an overcast day with intermittent rain. A perfect condition for shooting waders due to minimum heat-waved from the ground.

Hi Kiah

Stunning pics as usual - I especially love the egret (a Great by the way, not Intermediate). Do you have any more shots of that Pacific Golden Plover? Interesting bird.
