I’ll have to admit since all the-rarely-seen Rock Sandpiper wanted to do was sleep, I was quickly distracted by three Sanderlings that landed nearby and ran back and forth hunting for food as the tide pushed inward.  Even with a still camera, I like action.  

These two seemed to stick together the whole time, 

while the third one stuck to himself, 

and amazed me when it nearly ran over my foot and settled down in a protected part of the jetty feet away from where I was standing.

Apparently I had been standing in one spot so long it considered me just another part of the scenery.  Mission accomplished.

One thought on “Sanderlings”

  1. Truly beautiful photos, Loren. I love that one of the Sanderlings was comfortable enough with your presence as part of the scenery that it nearly ran over your foot. That’s the best!
