Sanderlings - morning light

Done at Presqui'lle Provincial Park

The Sanderling (Calidris alba, syn. Crocethia alba[1] or Erolia alba) is a small wader. It is a circumpolar Arctic breeder, and is a long-distance migrant, wintering south to South America, South Europe, Africa, and Australia. It is highly gregarious in winter, sometimes forming large flocks on coastal mudflats or sandy beaches.
Sanderlings - morning light

The Sanderling is a small plump sandpiper, 1820 cm in length. Its weight ranges from 40-100 g. The winter bird is very pale, almost white apart from a dark shoulder patch. This is the source of the specific name, alba, which is the Latin for "white". Later in the summer, the face and throat become brick-red.

Hi Mario,

Magical morning light on this Sanderling threesome. Love the rippled reflection & the ambient sky blue of the watery bg. Sharp focus & perfect low POV. A very well composed image.
