Shore plover - Thinornis novaeseelandiae

This image was taken at Plimmerton, not far from Mana Island, Wellington, North Island, New Zealand. It was captured handheld with the Sony A900 full frame 24.6 megapixel digital camera, using the Sony 70-300G lens, at a focal length of 160 mm, with an exposure of 1/800 second, F/11, ISO-500.

To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site, they should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has been reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels. In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
 
To give you an appreciation of the clarity of the image when enlarged, below is a crop of a small area of the above image:
