Good day!

I and my professor are now currently making a photographic guide for birds in Mindanao, Philippines. Unfortunately, some specimen photos of ours are not that presentable enough for the guide. Even some specimens have their photo not taken as they were just observed in the field. On this mark, I would like to ask your permission to use your photo of Sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos). Proper photo citation will be applied in our field guide for your credits. Hoping for your positive response. Thanks and best wishes!
