Little Fuzzball by juddpatterson Little Fuzzball by juddpatterson
This cute little fuzzball was exploring the beach back in May 2008...it is only a week old and about 2.5" tall. I did research involving Snowy Plovers in Utah, but this was my closest encounter with the tiny chicks. They are so brave as they run around catching insects.

Looks like Snowy Plovers need to get more sleep. :)

Wow, that thing is tiny - and comical-looking too, because of the oversized head. A nice capture of a cute little creature. :)

The white gives a sense of heavenly feel and fragility. :)

This is really awesome. No SP's by me, but we have piping plovers, and the chicks look nearly identical to this one. Absolutely flawless, I love this shot.

Cool! Did you blur the ground in the front in Photoshop? Or did you take the picture that way?

No blurring in Photoshop...just OOF from the very shallow depth of field from a long lens and extension tube (to decrease the close-focusing distance).

I like how there isn't much contrast between the bird and it's surroundings (I'd usually say differently for wildlife!). All the white makes it such a soft image. The focus is perfect.
