Snowy PloverSnowy Plover – Nikon D200, handheld, f6.3, 1/2500, ISO 250, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 400mm, natural light

A simple image of a beautiful Snowy Plover (Charadrius nivosus) in a rather goofy looking pose. The plover had been preening and paused for a few frames with its tail lifted up and its eyes barely open. I couldn’t resist sharing.
