Sanderling posing at seashore near West Meadow Beach. The light wasn't the best but this bird was very cooperative so I could not resist taking some photos. Such a modest bird, yet so colorful in its breeding plumage!
Sanderling relaxing on a warm May afternoon. I knew that sanderlings become colorful in the summer but i never supposed that they become iridescent. It was just after taking the picture when i could notice iridescence on its head and on the covers of the wings
