These runners require no expensive shoes but sprint rapidly with the expanding waves. Their expressive cheeping and their diminutive profile require extra care from human neighbors. See also: Piping Plovers Protected on Cape Cod. And Sound of the Plover

Paul, the piping plover (Charadrius melodus melodus and Charadrius melodus circumcinctus.) can't be found in my country. It's well known to bird watchers here however and they have nicknamed it 'dwergplevier'(dwarf plover).
It's an endangered bird species, but their numbers have increased since 1999. It's estimated now at 6,510 individuals.
Good capture again!

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

There is something about the textures in this scene that have been captured so perfectly, almost can feel this through the screen ... excellent result!

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
