And there are different sandpipers. I don't know which this is, but it isn't afraid to stick its head in the water.

Wow, nice shots. Never saw a picture of one with it's head in the water though. :)

Juvenile /1st winter Sanderling, one of my favourite waders. Love to watch these running ahead of the waves, just like clockwork mice.
Good POV and nice detail in the plumage.

Yes, apparently I tend to the darkside! These are always reduced from my print edits and I try to match what I recall the light was. I used to go overboard on using the shadow/highlight control, so I may go through phases.

The next shot the head is completely underwater.

Sanderling for sure. Sandpipers are a bit bigger.

Cute little buggers, that's for sure.
