Spotted Sandpiper, Actitis Macularia

Spotted Sandpiper, Actitis Macularia

An early morning on the shore of one of ten thousand, this little Spotted Sandpiper carefully studies the continental breakfast buffet. So many choices, but they are all still bugs. How can I tell that this is a SPOTTED sandpiper? He wandered off to the side of the sun and I caught this photo.

He sure was busy, darting around catching bugs. He’d hunker down low and chase them! It was fun to watch until I had my fill of bugs too. It’s hard to hold a big lens still while you have bugs crawling on you. I’ll have to work on that I guess.

    Love the silhouettes in the first image. More a painting than a photograph. And such a beautiful bird in the second. Sorry you had to deal with the bugs!
