This Semipalmated Plover looks a little anxious but I don’t know if it’s anticipating anything. I, on the other hand, am anticipating something. I’m in Florida and anticipating doing some “beach panning” down here over the coming week. This image is from my last “beach panning” outing, at Salisbury Beach in Massachusetts this past August. Beach panning is one of my favorite ways to photograph birds, laying flat on the sand and capturing them at bird’s eye level.
