Okay, this is going to sound absurd, but really...I need advice. Shore birds are super quick and like to hang out right at the edge of the waves and tide. In order to do them justice, I need to actually lie down in the sand and probably get wet and grungy.
So, my question...what do you guys wear and how do you protect your gear? I'm thinking cargo shorts, sandals, a quick drying t-shirt. Or what the heck..wear a bathing suit.
And how do you protect your gear? Using a telephoto lens, I can stay away from the water, but then I've got to contend with sand. Get close to the water and I've got salty water everywhere.
