We see you, pretty little plover hiding in the beach grass. This wonderful shot of a common ringed plover was taken in Ekstakusten, Gotland, Sweden by Josefine Stenudd, who writes, "I sat down on a beach, but after a little while this bird showed up, seeming kind of angry with me, and eventually settled down adorably in a little nest that I hadn't even seen." At which point Josefine quickly took some photos and promptly skedaddled. All's well that ends well.
