I don't have a lot of knowledge or software to edit my photos, but I liked this one straight from the camera.

(I kicked up the temperature just a tiny bit, which seemed to liven it up a little).

Hi BP

A very nice photo

This looks a lot like a Long-toed Stint.

Sharp Tailed Sandpiper is also a possibility?

Thanks for the help. It's difficult for me to identify these smaller birds sometimes.

I had thought it was a sandpiper originally, but wasn't sure. The stint also looks like a distinct possibility.

BB, neither of those occur in Florida. This is a Least Sandpiper (a stint by another name) - it is a good picture, but a bit too bright, which alters the colors somewhat.

I tried to work on this a little bit to reduce the brightness. I wish I had a few more to choose from, butthis is the best of the bunch that I took.
