  3. I miss the sea!!! I love to watch the sanderlings running out with the surf and they dashing back in again as the waves roll in. My old dog, a bouvier, used to love to run after them … with no fear of catching them, but they would fly low out to sea, gradually enticing him into deeper and deeper water before they headed back to shore and their business of searching for titbits!!

  6. Sanderlings! I wondered what those littel buggers were. Thanks Chip. Great shots. Are those with the 500?

      Yep, Jay and I love that big monster even if it does get a little heavy at times. In fact, i love it so much that I bought another camera body to use with all my other lenses and keep the Sigma mounted on my T3!
