Not what would normally be considered good composition, with the bird facing away, but I still took this photo because it was a unique moment for me. I had stopped by the beach on my way to a wildlife refuge, and didn't see anything interesting. So, I sat down and just took in the cool breeze and the sound of the waves crashing. I was so in the moment that I almost didn't notice this sanderling that had walked up and was standing just a few feet from me to my right. Unfazed by my presence, he then proceeded to walk towards the shoreline where he stood still for a few minutes. It was almost as if he was gazing across the vast expanse of ocean, marveling at the grandeur, in the same way that I was. In that moment, we were two very different spectators enjoying the one beautiful planet that we share. I thought it was pretty cool
That said, what do you think of the composition? Does it tell the story, or is it just a poor photo of the back of a sanderling ?
