    Default WEEKLY THEME GALLERY 2/5/10 "WADER WEEK"

    Some fantastic examples of "Big and Little" last week, some of them in the same photo which I did'nt expect so well done
    I'm already missing the waders so I thought all you members could help me get my fix of "little brown jobs" this week by posting some wader shots.
    Any migratory wader is up for inclusion so good luck going through your files

    Mixed flock of waders (Red necked Stint,Sharp tailed and Curlew Sandpiper) at Point Wilson in late afternoon light

    Canon 5D 400mm f5.6 L iso 400 1/800th f5.6 CW metering -1/3 handheld
    No photoshop
