Dunlin – Calidris alpina

This single Dunlin (Calidris alpina – Alpenstrandläufer) came very close at the Darsser Ort, Germany, on the Baltic Sea in September 2010. It was looking for food and let me take some photos. The pattern of the feathers is beautiful.

  2. Great photos. I like the way you have photographed the bird from different angles showing the patterns of the plumage.

    • Thank you Mick – actually the bird did the wandering and so I was able to take it from different sides 🙂

  3. Beautiful shots, as always. I especially love how the water looks in the background when the bird and the foreground are so crisp and clear. I really enjoy the lines and the textures in these shots. Well don!

  4. Absolutely wonderful detail and colorings! Your photos constantly amaze me-thanks for sharing your genius with us!

  5. Beautiful photos they really show the pattern of the plumage.

  6. I love them.:) You got some really good shots here. Enjoy it. 🙂

  7. …the lighting, the detail–everything came together in these photos. Beautiful!

  8. It’s back is soooooooo pretty! Nice shots. 🙂

  9. Beautiful shots of it you got… If you want to see it in breeding plumage you should visit Iceland. Although I’ve seen some that stayed over here, quite incredible with the temps we are getting now…

  10. Really beautiful captures!!

  11. I had to stop by and see your photos of the Dunlin 🙂 Nicely done! You captured it in nice plumage too.

  12. Gorgeous shots of the Dunlin Natalie! They are cool birds and that second to the last shot really shows the beautiful colors of the plumage on its back.
