A session with the Sandpipers

It is very, very seldom that I will go out to intentionally photograph something specific, but a couple of days ago I did just that after seeing some sandpipers along the river and wanting some photos of them. I understand that in many places they have gotten used to the presence of people and will allow one to get fairly close, but that hasn’t happened to the ones here: these are as wild as March hares. I worked very hard for these shots and enjoyed every second of it! (I also got all carried away posting the photos, which happened because I just completely fell in love with this pretty little bird.)
