Pilrito Comum

Calidris alba


Update: adding a new mission... On a very cloudy and freezing day, a group of birds was trying to warm up near the shore. I never got so close to them as I did on that day. I was 10ft from the group and aside from the "watchman", the rest of the group just ignored me. I stood there for at least an hour, clicking over and over again... Hope you enjoy it.
