Description We're lucky. We've got a beach to the east of our home that rarely has many people on it. You can wander for a couple of miles actually often only seeing a half dozen other walkers. No, I'm not going to tell anyone where it is, heh. Sandpipers are some of the most skitish birds you can photograph. Fortunately this particular day I had both patience and a telephoto lens with me. This was the best shot out of a dozen taken.
