This photo is one that I took with Yatsu tidal flat in Narashino, Chiba in the fall of seven years ago. Most of the land is reclaimed after another From the 1960s to the 1970s, flats of Tokyo Bay in Chiba Prefecture, has been developed as residential areas and industrial areas. However, it is subject to landfill since it was owned by the former Ministry of Finance by the Tone River spillway plan, flats of this Narashino Yatsu was left like a pond leading to the sea in the channel two. After that, there was also reclamation project, but also advertising by conservationists and that this tidal flat has been pointed out as a rare habitat of migratory birds of sandpipers, plovers, and ducks etc flying to Tokyo Bay, citizens became to recognize its importance with 41ha area. After that, here is specified to birds and beasts reserve in the country (Group brought over land) in 1988. In addition, it was registered in the Ramsar on June 10, 1993. In the center left of the photo, we can see Black-winged Stilt with long legs.

The patterns created by the puddles left behind form the tide are like lacework. The inclusion of the black-winged stilts is icing on the cake!
I am assuming (and hoping) that this area is still a conservatory where these creatures can find refuge.

Interesantan tekst o mestu i trenutku ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Lep trenutak, plaza za vreme plime i ptice koje traze hranu.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazan trenutak.

Nicely captured birds in clean water. I like your viewpoint and also how you placed the birds in the frame. The placement to the side of the frame does strengthen things and creates excellent balance. The light reflections add a nice hue to the scene. Greetings, Miro

The Black-winged Stilt is a bird not residing in Israel, not sure if ever I saw one alike.
Beautifully placed off-center on pic., to allow width over the wet-area and sand in an interesting display format.
Have a nice Friday evening,
