Can't Catch Me...

These sandpipers were captured at sunset. They were running in and out of the surf, hunting for sand crabs. The bird in the front has a fresh catch.

I'm with Marilyn; I thoroughly loved watching them dash back and forth when I came out to your neck of the woods! Nicely done!

Love the way the "escape artist" affects the composition. The colors are great, too.

This is fantastic, Donna! I just love that little guy in the front running off before the others see him. Excellent lighting, colors, composition...and, of course, timing!
