This Pied Oystercatcher I snapped over the weekend was surprised by a incoming wild wave at Snapper Rocks, Gold Coast. I knew this was bound to happen at some stage so I waited for the right moment: Oystercatchers are very shy of humans and seldom allows close approach. That’s for bloody sure. They are as wary little bastards. I snapped this one with a 300mm lens. Queensland, Australia.
