You got some great light for these shots, Dave! Beautiful!

That sanderling in the first shot is really relaxing isn't it - really cute.

They are all really good but if I had to choose among them I'd go with #2 just for the interesting posture of the turnstone, #3 because of the light and surroundings that make it look like a painting, and #5 for the detail you caught.

See, NYC really does have bona fide wildlife within its borders!!

The Turnstone and close-up sanderling shots were "gifts."

I was next to a seawall, sun at my back, with my White balance dog, and they just didn't see us. That has never happened to me before. I can only focus to 16 feet, but the little guy often came as close as four or five feet - and still didn't see us.

The WB dog, trained to "don't chase the ducks," (a duck being defined as anything that moves by itself and is not a clam or a crab) actually looked at me, saying, "Look, I've been a good dog, right? Don't these guys look like crabs?"

So I got lucky!
