Sandpiper

C as sandpiper, a Bohemian transplant to the Brittany coast. In the background, waders catch tidbits from a rivlet heading into the sea. Could they be dunlin? I refer the question to local experts (Lucy?)

Glad that you are back from your trip and posting lots of pictures.

This is a great one with such a powerful sense of movement, from the diagonal concrete wall (that, due to the sand seems to be foreshortening faster than expected) to C's motion in the other direction. But there's more of a dynamic with the dark subject against the bright background and the slight sense that she's contained within (and about to break out of) the curve of the rivulet leading out to the ocean.

These beach photos of C are just gorgeous, what a little sprite she is!

They might be dunlin, I'd have to look them up...

It is hard to tell from that far away, but somehow they don't look seagully to me.
