2016—With The Wind At His Back

Even though he’s fast approaching the edge of the frame, I couldn’t resist this little sanderling scurrying along the beach with his feathers ruffled and buffeted by the wind at his back.   It’s another “beach panning” shot from North Padre Island, Texas.  I hadn’t yet managed to consistently keep my subject in the best position in the frame while sprawled on the sand with my frisbee-mounted camera gear—not that I ever managed that.  But, the good news is that I kept the subject level, something that I found to be almost as difficult as following it.
