Tuesday Afternoon Bird Photo

This is a spotted sandpiper. Easy to see how it got the name. I took this photo last week at the James River, which flows through Richmond VA. Apparently this is a fairly common type of sandpiper, but this was my first sighting of one. It's always exciting to see a new bird for the first time!

All God's creatures ....

It's foot is held at a funny angle, was it OK Penny?
Another very appealing one for you 'book'.
Yes, his foot was fine. Just the camera angle, I guess. And pretty big feet, good for keeping balance on rocks!
