Least Sandpiper

Cold winter days give me plenty of time to play with my Photoshop program...so much to learn and so fun. I just wish I could remember it all! It's amazing how quickly you can turn an ordinary photo into something very special.

I took pictures of this little Sandpiper in Southport, NC last fall. The Least Sandpiper is the smallest shorebird in the world. It occur in flocks of dozens or hundreds and forages at the upper edge of mudflats or along drier margins of inland ponds.
