Common Sandpiper | Actitis hypoleucos | Kedidi Pasir

Photographed on the grounds of UniSZA, the Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin, in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia. The bird was walking along the top of a weathered concrete drainage channel, and didn't mind much as my friend Anuar carefully manouevered the vehicle along side it.


I am happy with this image, kind of nailed all the elements of a basic, pleasing picture - in focus, nicely exposed, eye catchlight, balanced composition, good pose/head tilt, eye contact, attractive background, interesting texture, complementary colour palate, etc., etc.
