[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here the Spotted Sandpiper eats house flies for about an hour steady. He is faster than the flies and cathes them when they are on the rocks. I was able to stay within 20 feet of him for a long time. He was used to overlooking people on the shore.


note: focused slightly
