CommentMy best photo of 2019. I'm particularly interested in Hooded Plovers as they are increasingly endangered on our beaches - but have found them hard to photograph well without disturbing them. I waited for this Hoodie for 30 minutes behind a rock until he was close enough , and eventually got a nice detailed shot of him undisturbed in his wave-front environment.
EquipmentI just upgraded from a Nikon Coolpix P900 bridge camera to a Nikon D500 + Tamron 150-600 G2 lens, and am getting a lot more keepers as I learn the new system. 1/1000th, f/6.3, ISO180, +0.33EV, Shutter Priority
