Tuesday afternoon (7-10-18) I went back to Brackett's Landing North where I found a single least sandpiper foraging in the same location as the westerns the previous day. I got close-ups that should enable viewers to compare the two. The last three shots were taken at -1 exposure compensation due to the bright sunlight coming in from behind me. The first two were taken "straight on" and had to tweak them for the same reason.

The sandpiper had been foraging on the beach, then flew to a small piece of driftwood.

The sandpiper was so light that it could walk on the seaweed flotsam. The smallest of the sandpipers, it is about the size of a sparrow.

My son and I had been photographing birds at Brackett's Landing North the previous day. Another photographer asked me to pose for a photo as I was going back to the pickup. I think it gives me that professional photographer look. ;)
