Sandpipers

  1. I went out to the Cape May NJ beach this morning to try and get some bird pictures. I used my Nikon 300 f2.8 on my D100. It was really hot, even at 8:am, so I didn't get much. I did get a couple shots of these Sandpipers. These were taken at f8 in A priority mode. Comments welcome as always

  2. I was always kind of partial to these birds. I like the way they run along the beach. Nice shots, Ed!
     
  3. I used to live within walking distance of the Pacific in N. California and certainly miss it and the sandpipers; I'm 100 miles inland in the mountains now. I'm jealous.

    Hi, They really are interesting as they run from the waves. Thanks for the comments. :)
     
  5. By the sea

    Hi,

    I have always lived near the ocean, and I am sure I would miss it. Thanks for your comments.

  9. Fall Migration

    Hi Mike,
    I would guess that for some species it has already. For the most part September is the beginning.
    Have a great week at Fenwick Island. :D
