    Hello,
    A morning shoot along a very small creek high in the Rockies yielded a few good shots of this little bird; the Spotted Sandpiper. They are quite wary and a low to the ground approach was in order. The bird came fairly close but still kept its distance.
    These image were cropped vertically as there was a lot of out of focus foreground and background.

    Here are a couple of samples:

    original.

    Images shot using D200 + AFS II 300mm f2.8 + 1.7x TC + tripod

    Thank you for looking.
    Regards.
