Reaching for a snack

Stretch feeding

A western sandpiper stretching out to grab a bite to eat while on the run. Taken along Limantour Spit in Point Reyes National Seashore.


  1. Whoa! Great moment caught there. I love all the sand (or what looks like sand) caked on the rear leg. Super-sharp.

  2. Thanks, Pescalune and John! This was one of those lucky moments where I just happened to hit the shutter at the perfect time, when it was at its fullest stretch.
