Semipalmated Plover

Vocabulary word: semipalmated means that he has partially webbed toes. This apparently is common for wading birds. So the very attribute that gives this bird such a funky name is nowhere to be seen in this image. Instead, you get a smirk and some shoulder action. But I like the swallow silhouette in the background.
