Sanderling Steals the Show

Ironically, with Avocets and full frame shots of Reddish Egrets in abundance, one of my favorite photos from last weekend’s FeatherFest ground level field trip on Saturday was this little Sanderling.  I’m always looking for small shorebirds when they are bathing and preening trying to get their beaks sticking straight up in the air.  Scored with this one.

Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II with 1.4X III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head

Aperture priority, 1/1250 sec @ F5.6, ISO 1600, evaluative metering, + 1 2/3 exposure compensation
