Sanderling at Portscatho beach

This stunning Sanderling, complete in winter plumage was photographed on the beach tide-line this morning at Portscatho, Gerrans Bay. The weather was overcast with heavy, dark grey cloud and this lovely light seems to compliment the snow white colours of Sanderling. I took about 200 shots and virtually all were in focus. The bird was confiding and as such a tele converter was not used. ISO 640. Exposure - 0.3 . White Balance set to Cloudy. Shutter speed 500 th/sec. The images have been cropped and tidied up in CS3.
