Great Lakes Piping Plover

    Newer Older

    The Great Lakes Piping Plover is a treat to see as they playfully scamper up and down the shoreline. It is well advised to keep a distance and avoid their nesting areas as they are an endangered species. Their breeding pair population fluctuates, but is around 5 dozen currently. Lake levels, declining habitat and predators take their toll on this playful bird.

      So now you're into bird photography?? goodness me, it seems that there is no limits to your talents! The depth of field here is a delight, and the clever positioning of the bird, showing all that space on canvass, is spot on. And many thanks for your feedback and kind encouragement. Much appreciated!

      Very cool shot. In a general sense where was this? I know several spots along Lake Michigan where access is restricted during breeding season.
