3 Sanderlings (IMG)
11/8/04 - Laguna Beach, CA - USA. Sanderlings are usually seen in flocks darting about the surfline, but this little specimen decided to follow a different tact and spent 20 minutes on the rocks by itself probing for tiny crustaceans. I was very happy, as I shot 40 images and the bird basically ignored me while I crept within 10 meters. Nikon D100 w AF VR Nikkor 80-400mm D - 1/200 sec @ f 5.6 Hand-held on monopod.
