He was really patient. I only had a 80mm lens with me and I had to sorta creep down the beach, taking a shot every other step, praying each time I could get a little closer without him taking flight. Then I somehow saved the last one I took and couldn't enter it. I was hoping to set up next night & wait for him to come back, but the dog spooked him & he decided he didn't like that spot anymore. Hope this does ok, but no one will know the story so it might look pretty boring. PP was crop, curves, resize & usm

I like this shot and maybe if you cropped a little off the top making the bird the first thing your eye connects with

nice silhoutte, but the bird seems too centered

Makes one want to fall in love or recall the feeling. Such a wonderful, moody photo. Hope it hangs in a great position in your home.
