It’s so hot here (the Instant Read Thermometer I usually use for grilling registered 106.2° about 3PM yesterday) that I haven’t thought too much about taking photographs. This morning, while reviewing photographs on my computer, I ran across this shot of a Lesser Sandpiper that I took at the Lagoon on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica in January. I haven’t published it before now because I wanted to showcase the more exotic species I photographed in Costa Rica. The shot reminds me of cool coastal waters and, of course, the movie “The Sandpiper” and its award winning song of 50 years ago. And, looks are deceiving. The temperature when I took the shot, at about 6 AM, was nearing 80° and the humidity was about 95%. At least, as they say, we have DRY heat!
