Yeah, they usually keep a safe distance that is often beyond my lens's reach. But occasionally they surprise you like this.

Looks like you did a good job focusing and tracking him as he walked the shoreline. I always try to include room for the feet even if they're not visible. My mind seems to expect a certain amount of space where the feet would be. Very nice image though and definitely sharp.

too much for my mind to move the focus point while trying to follow the continually moving bird. you caught on the one thing I wish I had done better. even though the feet would have been behind the rocks the shot would have been a lot better if it had space for them.
