The Piping Plover is a small (6 - 6 1/2" long) shorebird that nests along the North American shores of the Atlantic, the Great Lakes, and along major rivers and wetlands of the Northern Great Plains. In 1986 it was placed on the Federal Endangered Species List, and since that time a great deal of effort has been made in helping this little bird recover from drastic population decreases which plagued it throughout much of the 20th Century.

The Plover population is slowly recovering, thanks to the implementation of effective management techniques, the vigilance of "Piping Plover Wardens," and the increased understanding and cooperation of recreational beach-users. This is particularly true on Crane Beach, MA where I took this picture of an adult Piping Plover.

Very nice composition, good framing and details.
Very good note.

Great shot Stephane.
I'm impressed what you can do with a CP 990.
Very good sharpness, POV, colours, exposure and composition.
Great work.

Nice shot, Stephane!
Very good details and composition, the lights are fine.
Well done!

Good image, I like the space infront of the bird, colours and detail are also good, could do with maybe just a touch of USM to crisp it up a little, but still good for a digiscope image.

Was this really taken with a scope Stephane, fantastic shot!
Great clarity and colours, good note also, would have liked to know more about the camera to scope connection though.
Well done!

Magnifique photo, Stephane, comme toutes celles de votre album d'ailleurs. Votre maîtrise du digiscoping est excellente. La qualité des clichés, jouant en particulier sur profondeur de champ très précise qui noie l'avant et l'arrière-plan pour ne mettre que le sujet bien en avant, est parfaite. De splendides images d'oiseaux, dont l'huitrier, qui est aussi très belle!

Stephane, Excellent capture! It has very good sharpness, details & color with perfect exposure. Well composed..A great post. TFS!!

Very nice job, Stephanie. Composition, color and DOF are excellent. Glad to hear the population is recovering.

Stephane, you have an exceptional talent. Your photos are all great shots.

The details and sharpness of this one is commendable and the contrasting orange beak and legs adds a nice touch. Interesting subject too.

I notice that you have posted 5 photo's and written only 3 critiques. You can make a valuable contribution to the site if you write more critiques. It would also help to get to know the guys and dolls on the site and improve the site growth overall. Give it some thought... :)

This is a beauty.. Good composition, colours. Sharp details. the frame compliments it too.. well done

I think this is the first didscope image I've seen here, and its a damn good one. The low angle provide a unique POV of this rare wader. Composition is very goo dwith the space in front of the bird. This is a good image, keep 'em coming.

Nice shot good pose and details. Not a nit for this shot.
Well done.
