Cute little guys. I like how the second one is hiding his beak - almost like he's trying to keep it warm. Very nice!

I love the feather detail on those photos. They are pretty birdies aren't they?

Here are two very good examples of why the metaphor of killing two birds with one stopne is not a good one. These are beautiful.
I so miss life behind the redwood curtain.

Peace.

Girl, you make my longing for a road trip to Florida even more urgent. Longing for the smell of the ocean air and the constant crashing of the surf, bird squawk and gator fever, makes this amateur photographer/naturalist swoon.

Thanks for the pics!

Sweet.

Nice shootin'. The Least is one of my favorite peeps! I'm rather partial to Purple, White-rumped, Western, Semipalmated...

Delightful shots, Jill. They are so cute as you so well captured in these personality shots. Speaking of personality, moved by your angry ocean photos.

Exquisite detail! Beautiful photos.

Such great photos of that little sandpiper. Sometimes I wonder why birds hide the beak in the feathers. Are they cold or something? But it looks so cosy.

A magnificent photograph, very neat and cute birds

Beautiful bird and photographs. I have seen similar on the beach of Cape Cod, but they are much bigger, probably different species.

Such lovely birds. Maybe they should be renamed from "least" to "most" or "best" :) Just kidding. Your work is amazing - especially the wildlife. Thanks for reminding us of the beauty and diversity in the world.
