We went to look at the low tide creatures, and this is the only photo that turned out.

Much as I like the composition of this shot, I can't help but wonder whether it would have been better yet had you instead magically happened upon a brighter colored bird, which would have provided more contrast in relation to the background, and perhaps even prevented me from leaving a really long run-on sentence in this comment, to which I should really stop adding words.

That was the bird that was there, under the lighting conditions that existed at the time.

I've processed the image for printing since posting it. I dodged (lightened) the bird, and burned (darkened) the clouds above it. I also cropped it pretty drastically, making it much more rectangular.
