A day in the life of my Peeps, part deux...

If you read my post yesterday about the vicious Sanderlings and you thought I was just kidding...well guess what! Look at these two going at it, beak and claw! Apparently someone got too close to someone elses turf and picked up a tasty morsel that he shouldn't have. The next thing you know...attack of the killer Sanderlings!

They moved so quickly I had a difficult time keeping them in the frame...oh, to have a video camera! And you thought it was boring being a peep...

Check out the fancy footwork! "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee..."

And of course, a little fancy wing work also!

And the winner!
Gives a whole new meaning to 'a pain in the neck' doesn't it?

"You're next, camera boy!"
At this point, you would see me screaming like a little girl, arms waving and running down the beach!


  1. Great photography!! And the winner said, "I don't want to hear another peep out of you!"

  2. Hi Dave,
    Yes they are indeed moving quite quickly, and it is really hard to get nice shots if the light is not good, cause the speed of the shutter has to be quick. But you managed it well and you have very dynamic shots!

  3. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the beach...

    Great stuff Dave!
