Running Dunlin

The Dunlin (Calidris alpina) is not very shy, but not easy to photograph, because it’s always in action moving extremely fast. I did this image of the little wader on an autumn day with nearly no light. So I made the best of the situation and tried to demonstrate the running movement with a longer shutter speed.
