  11. Congratulations on the lifer Bob!! And what a nice bird the little stint is!! And of course you know that a picture you feel you have to apologize for would be a good picture for some of us (well for me anyway -- I would be mighty proud if I got that good a picture of any shorebird!!). Thanks for sharing your new bird with us!!

  15. How little and cute! Their smallness is outstanding in the backdrop of the blurred spacious sea (or lake).

  17. Hi Bob,
    Brilliant images, really well done. Why do these birds never come closer and help us. Still waiting to see my first.
    All the best, John

  18. At least you saw the Little Stint, Bob, even if it was a bit far away for portrait photography. You did well! This is a species that I've never seen. With my best wishes - - - Richard
