Pied Oystercatchers at Sunset by 

A pair of Pied Oystercatchers catch the last sunset rays on Tallow Beach in Byron Bay. The Pied Oystercatcher is shy of humans and seldom allows close approach.
Canon 450D, EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.
