Least Sandpiper at Jericho Park

DSC_0665

Least Sandpiper | Bécasseau minuscule | Calidris minutilla: This very cooperative Least Sandpiper allowed me to take many good pictures of it (the one above is with food) at the pond in Jericho Park in Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada. I have never photographed one of this species and wanted to make it skip the line, so to speak. I may very well post another photo later this month.

Taken with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR (ISO 560 | 500mm | f/5.6 | 1/1000, cropped for composition). Not baited, called in or set up.
