Sanderling Feeding

Sometimes it takes some effort to get to your veggies.  This Sanderling is in full stretch mode to get his breakfast out of the sand.

1/1250 sec @ F5.6, ISO 400, evaluative metering, +1/3 exposure compensation, 700mm

    • Hey MIssy. I’d like to say pasta but most likely some type of invertebrate prey buried in the sand. Of course I knew that, ya right. Had to look that one up.
